Green Bay Packers Recognize Tom Murphy

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

This article, written by John Donaldson, was originally published Thursday, January 6, 2011 in the News-Sickle-Arrow. Reprinted with permission.

Tom MurphyTom Murphy, director for the St. Francis Xavier football program, has been named a recipient of the Green Bay Packers Community Quarterback Award.

Because of Murphy's selection, St. Francis football will receive a $1000 grant from the Packers organization. Murphy is one of just 20 nominees selected for this award.

The 20 recipients will be honored at a recognition luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 2. The luncheon will take place at the Legends Club at Lambeau Field.

Murphy, Packer fan that he is, is no doubt hoping the luncheon is postponed. The e-mail from the Packers organization, authored by Bobbi Jo Eisenreich, indicates, "Please note that in the event the Green Bay Packers advance to Super Bowl XLV, this luncheon will be rescheduled."

"We can have it another time," chuckled Murphy.

Murphy was nominated by Patty Loew, who describes herself as a "Former Football Mom". She first met Murphy when her oldest son – now a college sophomore – was 12. Since then she's had another son go through the St. Francis program, and her husband was a coach with the organization.

"Tom is the first one on the field and the last one to leave," wrote Loew of Murphy. "He's a humble man who deflects compliments about St. Francis Xavier Football onto the parents, coaches and players. He has influenced thousands of children with his gifts of time and energy."

When Murphy took over the St. Francis Orioles in 1991, there were 23 players on one team. This year, there were 227 boys and girls on ten teams.

"I believe the success of the high school program is directly attributable to the youth program Tom Murphy has built in Cross Plains," added Loew.

True to Loew's characterization, Murphy says he is humbled by the award.

"It's way past my expectations," he said Monday night, shortly after learning about the honor. "I never thought my volunteerism would reach something like this."

Murphy admits this award is especially significant to him because it is coming from the Green Bay Packers.

"Very much so," he said. "What the Packers do for youth sports is fantastic. They reach out in many different directions and I think it's great what they try to accomplish within the state."

Murphy said the money will be put to good use. St. Francis for the past several years has been raising funds to finish off its new athletic field, which is nearing completion.

“It takes a lot of work and a lot of people and obviously, donations are important all around,” he said.

St. Francis Xavier Football on Wisconsin Public Telvision

Thursday, November 26, 2009

WPT's In Wisconsin profiles the St. Francis Football program. Watch it online!

It's the little Catholic School that could. It has 200 kids that play football and that's the same as the entire population of the school. The program has such a great reputation kids from all over the area come to play for St. Francis Xavier in Cross Plains. They have a rich tradition of sportsmanship and winning. It's viewed as a feeder program for the perennial powerhouse Middleton High School Football Cardinals. One of their players has even gone pro. Patty Loew reports on the secret to their success.
