The buzz in sports this week is all about professional basketball and hockey championships or the loss of another Triple Crown contender. But Americans still love the game of football. One of the best football coaches that ever lived began his life this week in 1913. It is none other than the great Vince Lombardi. You can’t say the Green Bay Packers without mentioning him.
He not only won games in his life, but he also influenced young men for ages to come. Some of his quotes are below.
“Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate”
“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”
Maybe he got some good advice from another well- known coach of Nazareth. Christ seemed to be more concerned about what was inside the person than what they could do on the outside. He also knew that His kingdom rested on not just him. He spent time with people especially his disciples. Maybe today would be a good time to channel your energy in looking inside a person and getting them to win together with you. That’s a good game plan for success!
