The Rotary Lombardi Award goes annually to the college football lineman -- offence or defense -- or linebacker who, in  addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the discipline of Vince Lombardi. As the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers Lombardi first made a name for himself 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.  Appropriately, the trophy is a 40-pound bock of granite atop a silver pedestal built over a foundation of discipline. The symbolic design was created by Houston Rotarian and professional artist, the late Mark Storm.
