The Galileo Lions reached the play­offs but fell short of the cham­pi­onship game in a loss to Mis­sion. Although the 2016 sea­son was full of tri­als and obsta­cles, the Lions remain faith­ful and kept work­ing together to achieve the goal of reach­ing the play­offs. This sea­son was full of high­lights as evi­dent by the video.


The Galileo Foot­ball Pro­gram cer­tainly knows how to have a bit of fun before prac­tice. With an impromptu announce­ment from Coach Mark who sim­ply said, “Man­nequin Chal­lenge tomor­row before warm ups”, the play­ers and coaches more than responded with this video. This is the G-House ver­sion, a dif­fer­ent touch with a dif­fer­ent song.


The youth­ful Galileo var­sity lions fin­ished league play with a 1–5 record. With a mix­ture of aca­d­e­mic issues, injuries, and behav­ior sus­pen­sions, the Lions could not find any sort of con­stancy through­out the sea­son. After beat­ing Bur­ton for their first win, Galileo was in the dri­ving seat for a play­off spot but nar­row losses to Wash­ing­ton and then Low­ell in over­time, sealed their fate.


Galileo’s var­sity Lions fin­ished league play with a 3–3 record to make the play­offs as the #3 seed. It was a 7–0 game at Lin­coln until the final play when the Mus­tangs scored as time expired for a 13–0 vic­tory. Galileo had lost to Lin­coln by 40 points two weeks prior to this rematch.


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).


The sophomore-filled 2011 Lions missed the play­offs with a 2-win sea­son in league play. Sopho­more quar­ter­back, Kyle Nel­son led a spread offense that fea­tured fel­low sopho­mores, Ronzel Fox (RB), Don­tell Jack­son (WR), and Isaac Arm­strong (WR). Also included in the 2011 videos archive is a short film made by senior line­man, Anthony Lam, titled “What is G-House Foot­ball About”.
