2015 GLF Awards

The Galileo Lions Foot­ball Pro­gram have awards for 3 dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories; sum­mer awards, weekly awards dur­ing the sea­son, and the end of the fall sea­son awards. Var­sity play­ers are awarded hel­met stick­ers after each game. All awards are not for per­sonal glory but to rec­og­nize a player’s ded­i­ca­tion and hard-work.

Foot­notes:
The Coach George White Award is given to the player who was not only coach­able but worked really well with the coach­ing staff. Coach George White is the most highly dec­o­rated coach in Galileo his­tory with 9 city cham­pi­onships.
**The Sam Peo­ples Award is given to the player who exem­pli­fied the true mean­ing of lead­er­ship. This player leads by actions and not words. He is an exam­ple of integrity and account­abil­ity. A nat­ural leader, Sam Peo­ples quar­ter­backed the first unde­feated Galileo team in the 1988–89 sea­son.
***The Hudari Mur­ray Award is given to the player who “lives in the weight­room”. This player is not only ded­i­cated and dis­ci­plined in his work­outs but also shows the best gain in over­all lifts and muscle-mass. Hudari Mur­ray is a 3-time all city player line­backer who played in all 3 teams dur­ing the 1988–90 3-peat. As an assis­tant coach in the late 90’s to early 2k’s, Murray’s ded­i­ca­tion in get­ting play­ers to the weight­room dur­ing the spring and sum­mer were key com­po­nents to the ’96, ’98, and ’01.
****The Angelo Rubi Award is given to the top fresh­man of the sea­son. It is not about stats and level of play on the field but the com­mit­ment and hard work put in dur­ing the sum­mer and the sea­son. Angelo Rubi (2013) was the first incom­ing frosh player to show up for sum­mer prac­tices in coach Mark Huynh’s era.
****The Scot­tie Prom Mr. Lion Award is given to the player who earns the most points dur­ing the off-season. Each player is required to earn 200 points to par­tic­i­pate in the Fall sea­son. The Points Sys­tem keeps play­ers account­able in con­tri­bu­tion towards their pro­gram. The con­cept is that there are “no free lunch” and that each player must “earn their place at the table”.
