2014 Roster

The Galileo Lions, grad­u­at­ing 20+ seniors in their 2013 cham­pi­onship sea­son, will lean heav­ily on 3-year starter, Jamari Hilliard-Vasquez to anchor the defense at mid­dle backer. Offen­sively, senior QB, Phillip Tran and wide-out, Rod­ney Mor­gan look to put points on the board. The run game, on the legs of another senior, Nick Fos­ter might take some time to develop behind a brand new offen­sive line-all first year starters. Sopho­more DB, Dono­van Hasan moved up to start at cor­ner­back as the lone sopho­more to occupy a start­ing spot.

San Rafael Scrimmage Kicks Off 2014

Depth is the Cur­rent Issue for Lions

photo-3 Galileo’s out­look for the 2014 foot­ball sea­son won’t be deter­mined by their efforts at San Rafael High tonight for their scrim­mages (FS 5pm, V 7pm) but health will. With an under-25 man ros­ter, the var­sity Lions can not afford to lose a sin­gle player for any dura­tion of the sea­son. Like­wise, despite a cur­rent 40-man ros­ter, the frosh-soph team’s lack of expe­ri­ence after the first team will plum­met all-around per­for­mance sig­nif­i­cantly. For­tu­nately for the young Lions, once the frosh learn their fun­da­men­tals, they will be a force to come up against. Vice versa, the var­sity can only slow the bleed­ing but not stop it as their ros­ter only allows a 2-deep rota­tion as com­pared to last season’s 40-plus ros­ter boast­ing a 4-deep rota­tion. As of today, depth will be an issue for both Galileo squads but what we have learned in the past is that Lions often play with big­ger hearts.




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.
