The 2016 sea­son will have the var­sity Lions look­ing from the bot­tom up after a dis­as­trous 1–9 2015 cam­paign. Lead­ing the way will be a few key seniors; Con­nor Chavela (MLB), Dono­van Has­son  (WR/DB), all-city duos Ken­neth Grady (DE/RB) and Miles Main­ini (TE/DE), and Demaje Ardis (LB/TE). Key juniors who will con­tribute are; Ahmed Balwi (C/DT), Erasmo Rivas (WR/FS), Anto­nio Lewis (RB/CB), Jackie Guo (WR/DE), and start­ing QB, Adrian Poot.


All-city full­back, Ethan Nel­son will have his hands full lead­ing a group of young play­ers. He will get help from fel­low senior 4-year play­ers; Bran­don Wong and Jason Yu. This Junior and sopho­more heavy ros­ter fea­tures a few tal­ented play­ers who will need to grow up in a hurry; fea­ture RB Markell Vilce (11), sec­ond year CB Dono­van Has­son (11), QB Demaje Ardis (11), DE Ken­neth Grady (11), TE Miles Main­ini (11), sopho­more OL’s Ahmed Balwi and Andy Ix, and sopho­more cor­ner­backs, Anto­nio Lewis and Kings­ley Mai.

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 Has­son moved up to start at cor­ner­back as the lone sopho­more to occupy a start­ing spot.

2013 Roster

It’s now-or-never for the class of 2014 who has gone from no play­offs in their sopho­more var­sity sea­son to los­ing last year in the first round and now, look­ing for redemp­tion and their place in Galileo foot­ball his­tory, will be chas­ing that Turkey Day brunch meet­ing at Kezar.

2011 Rosters

The 2011 var­sity ros­ter includes 12 sopho­mores, 7 juniors, and 10 seniors. After grad­u­at­ing 20 plus seniors in each of the last 2 sea­sons, Galileo looks to gain expe­ri­ence this sea­son while mak­ing a push for the play­offs. Sopho­mores high­light the “glam­orous” posi­tions; Kyle nel­son (QB), Ronzel Fox (FB/LB), Don­tell Jack­son (RB/DB). The juniors look­ing to put a stamp on defense are Nick Toy (DT) and Nestor Acosta (NT). Seniors, Anthony Lam and Edward Luu have been won­der­ful sur­prises as leaders.

2010 Rosters

The 2010 Var­sity Squad fea­tures 2009’s AAA Run­ning Back of the Year, Quincy Nel­son and defen­sive stand­out, Max Mal­loy. With a young line, senior quar­ter­back, Jonathan Lu, will rely on Nel­son to make plays and receivers, Waynelle Buck­ner and Erik Wil­son to stretch the defense. William Kay, Wes­ley Choy and Rob­bie Trumbo round out a deep defen­sive back field. 

2009 Rosters

The 2009 Var­sity Ros­ter fea­tures return­ing senior quar­ter­back, Dylan Nel­son who led Galileo to a frosh/soph title in 2007 as a sopho­more. Nel­son is flanked by fea­ture back, Quincy Nel­son (junior), and full back, Patisela Ale (senior). Cen­ter, Shaun Numera will anchor the lions’ offense and their defense at defen­sive tackle and mid­dle line­backer. Chuck Jones and Paul Hill will back up the defen­sive line as linebackers.
