Coach Lorenzano earns Hall of Fame honor


Retired football coach Mr. Vince Lorenzano, currently director of safety, has been selected for  the Indiana Football Hall of Fame for his many years of coaching. Mr. Dave Whittemore, assistant football coach with Coach Lorenzano said his resume is impressive, but his impact will go on for generations. “He has never been about recognition and will likely wave this off this off as well. Vince’s main goal has not been about winning, rather it has been towards building men and a strong community.”

Coach Lorenzano began each season with the football mission statement: Bishop Chatard Trojan Football, a dynamic educational and athletic environment for young men with different life experiences, is directed to the success of each player, focused on the growth of the whole athlete, and modeled on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Bishop Chatard Trojan Football prepares its players and personnel to reach their unique potentials in their quest for the highest goal, the Indiana State High School Football Championship.
