Vince Lombardi

Our Great Coach on this episode is the Vince Lombardi.
Vince Lombardi was an American Football coach who is best remembered as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers in the 1960’s, where he led the team to 5 National Football League championships, including the first ever Superbowl in 1966.
He finished his coaching career in the NFL with a winning % of 74, and a post season winning rate of 90%.
He is considered to be one of the greatest coaches in American Football history, and the trophy awarded to the Super bowl winner is named in his honor.
Vince Lombardi passed away in 1970, however we are going to reconstruct an interview with him, by using his exact words.
I used 4 key books to find the words you will hear, and the words are 99% Vince Lombardi’s, with the occasional addition of a conjunctive word, or pronoun to connect phrases.
