MANALANG SCORES TWICE IN PURPLE VICTORY

In the Pur­ple vs Orange Spring Game, senior defen­sive tackle, Matt Fronda, despite not play­ing in a game since his fresh­man sea­son, showed his dom­i­nance on defense for the Orange-Fronda played the roll of the “Ter­mi­na­tor” with a habit of being around the ball to make tackle after tackle. Fronda capped off a career day with an unlikely INT which doesn’t hap­pen every day for DT’s. The Orange also included Galileo’s #1 defen­sive player in third year starter at mid­dle line­backer, Jamari Hilliard-Vasquez. This time around, JHV’s offen­sive play was slightly more impres­sive because he was never called upon to play the “O” in the last 2 sea­sons due to another fella named Fox.

Kyle Nelson Voted All-Metro First Team & MaxPreps DII 2nd Team All-State

glf13-kyle-nelson Con­grat­u­la­tions to Galileo’s All-Metro selec­tions, led by quar­ter­back, Kyle Nel­son, who was voted onto the first team all-metro offen­sive squad and as 1 of 4 top regional play­ers in the 2013 sea­son. Nel­son claims the “Metro-best 58 total TDs” title and was AAA CIF-SF’s Player of the Year. The 58 scores include 11 rush­ing TD’s and 47 pass­ing (27 in league, 6 in the post-season, & to sat­isfy all the argu­ments about Nelson’s inflated stats due to the “irrel­e­vancy of the AAA”-Nelson has 14 in 4 non-league con­tests, giv­ing him a mod­est 3.66 TD’s per league con­test and 3.5 TD’s per non-league con­test). Nel­son also gar­nered 2nd Team All-State hon­ors by Max­preps for divi­sion II.

2014 Games Schedule

The 2014 sched­ule is com­plete. Galileo’s non-league head­liner will be an inner-city tilt in week 1 with the Sacred Heart Irish who is as they say, “right up the block”. Tamal­pais will visit Galileo for the sea­son opener in week 0 prior to that game. The Lions will visit De Anza in week 2 for the third install­ment of this matchup with each win­ning a home game in the past 2 sea­sons. Fort Bragg will once again make that hideous drive down to Galileo for a rematch, this time they will bring their JV squad also in week 3.

The 2013 sea­son yielded a 17th city cham­pi­onship for Galileo. After los­ing a close game at Tamal­pais, the Lions fin­ished the sea­son with­out a loss, com­pil­ing 12 straight vic­to­ries cul­mi­nated in a tightly con­tested 34–30 vic­tory in the cham­pi­onship game against Lin­coln (scroll to bot­tom for game high­lights).

City Champs Honored at City Hall by Supervisor London Breed

Yee, Huynh, Breed The 2013 AAA &  CIF-SF sec­tion foot­ball cham­pi­ons received a pres­ti­gious invi­ta­tion by super­vi­sor and Galileo alum, Lon­don Breed, to City Hall on Tues­day, Decem­ber 17th. In the super­vi­sors meet­ing, super­vi­sor Breed and another Gal alumni, super­vi­sor Nor­man Yee both spoke highly of their pride in their school and rec­og­nized the play­ers, their prin­ci­pal, Mar­cus Black­sher and their head coach, Mark Huynh, for their accom­plish­ment. Mr. Black­sher and coach Mark also spoke briefly on behalf of Galileo and the foot­ball team. Senior cap­tain, Isaac Arm­strong was entrusted with the pre­sen­ta­tion of a pur­ple foot­ball shirt to Ms. Breed and he was the right man for the job. 25 play­ers attended along with 6 fam­ily mem­bers in this pres­ti­gious honor. When was the last time a city cham­pion was hon­ored at city hall? The answer might be “never”. Con­grat­u­la­tions to a fan­tas­tic sea­son to the Lions.
