Hall of Fame Coach Frank Girardi to be Honored at the Peach Bowl

Congratulations Coach "G" as you are honored at the Peach Bowl Saturday, December 31st! We are so proud of you and the recognition you truly deserve. You invented a winning coaching approach at Lycoming by creating a family atmosphere. You started a culture of being involved with players and their families! You cannot fake this attitude. You either have it or you are shallow as a coach. Thanks again for all the lessons demonstrated by you, Lynne, and your extended family! #GoWarriors

Words of encouragement for Lycoming's Equipment Manager Joe Lumbis

URGENT MESSAGE: It has come to our attention that Joe Lumbis, Lycoming's Equipment Manager of 29 years is experiencing physical difficulties which will require surgery in early January 2017. Joe does not use email or cell phones. The Lycoming Warrior family is asking that you send Joe a card with a note of encouragement and a specific moment you remember about Joe as soon as possible. This would go a long way to encourage Joe in this new challenge of his life.

Maybe, most importantly is to put Joe on your prayer chain and pass this note to as many people as you can. Our Lycoming Warrior family is so strong and so important to the school. Let's make a big difference in Joe's life.

His home address is:
Mr. Joe Lumbis
2757 Cochran Ave
Duboistown, PA 17702

Thanks you for all you do.

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Former Lycoming College head football coach Frank Girardi spoke at the National Football Foundation’s Annual Awards Dinner Press Conference ahead of his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame tonight, Dec. 6, at 8 p.m., at the Waldorf-Astoria, as part of the NFF’s Annual Awards Dinner. The awards dinner will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Below are Coach Girardi’s comments at the press conference, provided by Caption Northwest, Inc.

BONNIE BERNSTEIN: Frank Girardi, 1972-2007 at Lycoming, 257 victories, won 72 percent of his games, one of only 17 coaches on any level -- any level -- to reach 250 wins at one school. Coach, Coach Bowes was talking about the importance of having an eye for talent, hiring coaches around who can complement you. But you think about that: 250 wins at one school, 29 straight winning seasons. What's the formula? What really worked? If you had a bunch of young, aspiring coaches sitting here in front of you, what would you -- how would you guide them?
