Lombardi was born on June 11, 2013, in New York, to an Italian immigrant family. Lombardi was a young man who studied the priesthood (working in churches). He studied law and finance. However, all is not in accord with Lombardi. He was not born to follow those subjects.
Lombardi was born for American football. In 1939, he was invited by a former teammate to become an assistant coach for the American football team at St Cecilia High School. Overly excited about the offer, Lombardi actively cut her honeymoon short to accept a new job.
