“Spring Game: Purple vs Orange” Preview
Thursday 3pm @ George White Field
Thursday 3pm @ George White Field
Session 1 of 20 is on Wednesday, April 24. The spring practice schedule will be like a regular practice during the season but without pads and tackling. Returning players can use last season’s physical, all others must have a current physical to participate. A 2.0 minimum GPA is required at the 2nd quarter report card. All players currently in a spring sport are expected to show up when they can.
Effectively immediately, Coach Espy who has a long history with San Francisco football and is more than qualified to coach, will take over as the frosh soph head coach. He played at Wilson High School and had coached with Galileo principal, Mr. Blacksher at Marshall High School prior to arriving at Galileo in 2012–2013. Joining Coach Espy’s staff will be JROTC instructor Sarge Stephen Hardee and the most-experienced football coach in the AAA, Kevin Adams.
All Galileo players/prospects, as of this post, please do not visit or participate on the Galileo Confession page. Your words and participation can cause more harm than good to others. I haven’t been on the site and don’t intend to visit it. I know that I can’t make you stop reading the content but I ask that you don’t add fuel to the fire. We are all expected to be good members of our community. What you think is funny can cause harm to others. Be smart and wise and stay off of the site.
GLF: Let’s welcome back Justina Thai from the realm of collegiate life in the heart of the dessert, Las Vegas. Folks, if you didn’t know, Justina was part of the first G-Staff and the first to finish 4 years in the program. She’s like Captain America, the “First Avenger”, but without all the muscle.
The 2013 Winter Combine
Date: Friday-February 22, 2013
Time: 3:30 PM
Events: 40, Pro Agility, Vertical, Bench, Squat, Farmer’s Carry
Prospects Eligible for Combine:
The 2013 season will point the program back to a more traditional style of coaching with 2 separate coaching staffs. While the 2012 staff returns for another season (with 1 change — Donovan Phillips in place of Jackie Phung), coaches Espy and Hardee are first year coaches in the Galileo Football Program. This change will allow varsity coaches to focus on varsity players and vice versa for the frosh soph coaches. Coach Mark’s staff will continue to work throughout the off-season (winter camp, spring ball, & summer camp) until the 2 teams break for their own practices in August.
The Galileo Football Leadership application is out! Click here to download the GFL APPLICATION. To be a “captain” is to be a big brother in a family; he will know his family’s business and how to take care of his little brother. If you think you are ready for this responsibility, then you should apply. A “captain” will be selected for each position along with a “vote in” captain for each team. Only GFL captains will be selected as “game captains”.
The 2013 Step It Up Combine @ Lowell High School, January 27th. Four players represented Galileo at their first combine of 2013. Upcoming senior players: Terrell Jeffery (RB/LB), Dontell Jackson (WR/DB), Ronzel Fox (RB/LB), Isaac Armstrong (TE/DE).
Congratulations to the following Galileo Lions, who were voted into SanFranPreps All-City team, for an outstanding 2012 season! Players were selected from AAA & WCAL schools. Of the 5 players selected from Galileo, 4 are juniors and a lone senior (Acosta). Fox’s 150 tackles were city-best. Armstrong was effective as a tight end but more so at defensive end for the Lions. Jackson started the season at outside linebacker but returned to defensive back duties two games into league play. Acosta’s defensive effort in the middle and Nelson’s command of the Lions’ offense were key components for Galileo’s late push to get into the playoffs. All players except Armstrong (second team AAA) were voted into the AAA All-City first team as well.
