Vom Verlag: "Doing this book has been a labor of love for me. A love for football, for the era in which I played, and for the guys I played with and against. But mostly, a love for Vince Lombardi. After all these years, he still lives in the hearts of all of us. I hope this book does a little bit to explain why." —From the introduction by Paul Hornung
"And his emotions—he could cry very easily. … We had a new home and he came over to visit us. … He was praising Sherri for the job she had done, and she said, ‘Well, Coach, you’re the one who made this possible…we wouldn’t be here, except for you.’ "And he tears up immediately and walks over and gives her a big hug. When he turned around, he had tears running down his face. He came over and hugged me, and then he turned around and walked right out the door." —Bart Starr
"One play I missed a block. The next one I jumped offside. He jumped in and just reamed me out. He had me looking down, checking my shoeshine. I felt awful. "After practice, I went to the locker room and I was really thinking about packing it in. I really thought it was time for me to do something else. I had been there quite a while when Vince finally came into the locker room and saw me sitting there. He came over and patted me on the back. Then he tousled my hair. ‘Son,’ he said, ‘don’t you know that someday you’re going to be the best guard in football?’ That really got something started inside me." —Jerry Kramer
