De Pere, WI - A member of the Lombardi family in De Pere this morning. Coach Joe Lombardi, the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions and grandson of coach Vince Lombardi was honored as the key-note speaker at a day for men.
This seminar was held at the Saint Norbert Abbey and helps men forward their faith.
Joe Lombardi spoke about his grandfather's influence, saying "he died before I was born, so in a lot of ways he's to me, like he is to maybe other people who haven't known him. In some ways he is that legendary coaching figure than he is my grandfather at times".
Lombardi says it's always nice to come back to the Green Bay area and feels it's a community you can always count on.
