Congrat­u­la­tions to Galileo’s first team all-city let­ter­men led by sec­ond year all-city run­ning back & line­backer, Ronzel Fox. Arguably the most elec­tri­fy­ing and best run­ning back in the city, Fox rushed for 1113 yards in 137 attempts with 18 recep­tions for 292 yards to tally 14 touch­downs on the ground and 2 in the air. Fox also led the Lions with 150 tack­les for the sea­son (13.6 per game), had 2 inter­cep­tions, defended 4 passes, caused 4 fum­bles and ran 1 back for a touch­down. The lone senior in the group, Nestor Acosta, led all Galileo defen­sive line­men with 5 tack­les for a loss and totaled 63 tack­les. More impor­tantly, Acosta pro­vided lead­er­ship and inspi­ra­tion that does not go into any stat sheet. Kyle Nel­son amassed 1204 pass­ing yards, 10 touch­downs, and rushed for 180 yards and 3 scores. Don­tell Jack­son ran for  555 yards on 89 attempts, had 19 recep­tions for 174 yards, and scored 7 touch­downs; 5 on the ground, 1 pick-6, 1 kick off return. On defense, Jack­son tal­lied 45 tack­les, 2 inter­cep­tions, and a team-high 7 pass defends. A spe­cial recog­ni­tion for junior defen­sive end & tight end, Isaac Arm­strong, who should have been first team all-city as well but was placed on the sec­ond team. Arm­strong was by far the best tight end in the city this sea­son; he caught 24 balls for 398 yards and scored 3 times along with 2 2-point recep­tions. Defen­sively, Arm­strong had 100 tack­les, 3 for a loss, a team-high 5 sacks, 7 hur­ries, 1 inter­cep­tion, 1 fum­ble recov­ered, 1 fum­ble caused, and 4 pass defends.
