St. Louis-Tom Lombardo Chapter- network
MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL FOUNDATION ARE DEDICATED TO PRESERVING THE SPRIT OF FOOTBALL, ITS CHARACTER-BUILDING ATTRIBUTES AND IT'S VITAL ROLE IN THE EDUCATION PROCESS. OUR SOLE PURPOSE IS TO AWARD HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLAR ATHLETES WITH SCHOLARSHIP MONEY. THESE YOUNG MEN MUST MAINTAIN A 3.O G.P.A., BE ACTIVE IN THEIR COMMUNITY AND EXCEL ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.
The St. Louis/Tom Lombardo Chapter has quickly become a driving force throughout the St. Louis football community. Founded in 1992, the chapter impacts thousands of high school, middle school and grade school kids with a myriad of programs that successfully carry out the mission of the National Football Foundation.
Celebrating our 21st year in 2013
I am humbled and excited that the Tom Lombardo Chapter of the National Football Foundation is celebrating twenty-one years of people working selflessly toward a noble mission. I was apprehensive as we began this endeavor in 1981 but the aptitude and professionalism of those who joined in at that time soon allayed any concerns I may have had. These were people who knew how to get things done. They have drawn in others who have passionately joined the cause. Our chapter has become one of finest in the National Football Foundation and I look forward to building on the solid foundation now in place.
The Tom Lombardo Chapter has become a driving force in the St. Louis football community, impacting countless high school, middle school and elementary young people. I could not begin to thank all the individuals who have helped, but I would be remiss if I did not thank the Lombardo family for their constant support. The members of board of governors, board of directors, advisory board, junior board of directors, coach’s advisory committee represent many talented people who give freely for the greater good. The general membership of the chapter along with our loyal sponsors and contributors have made the work of our chapter successful. The players, parents, coaches, athletic directors and school administrators in the Greater St. Louis Area have been vital to our cause as they have provided us with energy and motivation to continue our work.
As we look to the future, our hope is to expand our influence though amateur football. We will deepen our impact and expand our programming. We will be true to our mission of promoting amateur football as way of developing the qualities of leadership, character, sportsmanship and competitive zeal in our young people.
If you are not already a member of our chapter, I invite you to join us.
I want to extent my sincere thanks to everyone who participated and those that helped us to have another successful golf tournament this year. As you know the funds raised from this tournament go towards our scholarship program and it is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We had great weather, lots of fun, making for a very successful outing!!

The St. Louis Chapter of the National Football Foundation is named for Tom Lombardo because he embodied the values and character, which the chapter seeks to develop and reinforce. Tom was born in 1923 and graduated from Soldan High School in 1941. He attended St. Louis University and transferred to West Point in July 1942, where he was captain of the Army football team. This team scored 504 points to their opponents' 35, a record which will probably never be equaled at the Academy.
Tom was serious, sincere, unselfish, mature, confident, and caring. He led by example, both on and off the field, and acted without pretense or fanfare. Tom's military career took him to Ch'ogye, Korea, where on September 24, 1950; he led a group of volunteers from the company he commanded up a hill to carry out an assault on an enemy position. Casualties were heavy, but the enemy was routed. First Lieutenant Tom A. Lombardo fell just as the enemy abandoned their position.
