ABOUT THE SEVEN BLOCKS OF GRANITE
The Rotary Lombardi Award® goes annually to the college football lineman —offense or defense-who, in addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the character and discipline of Vince Lombardi.
As the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers, Lombardi first made a name as the smallest but toughest member of Fordham University's "Seven Blocks of Granite," renowned in their day (1934-37) for being the most unyielding line in college football.
