1st Annual Tri-State Award

Tri-State Coach of the YearFrank Girardi, Lycoming College The standard for great coaches, Vince Lombardi once said, is consistency. It is one thing to have a great season, he said, but it is another to be great for a generation. "To have (players) come and go and still maintain that level of excellence is the biggest challenge for a coach," said Lombardi, who built the Great Bay Packers dynasty of the 1960s. "You have to be consistent in your approach, even though every season is different. You have to find a way to make all the pieces fit."
