2009 ALL-CITY LETTERMEN

glf09_allcity_sm

Galileo’s cham­pi­onship sea­son pro­duced 8 All-City play­ers in the coaches’ poll. Dylan Nel­son as “Player of the Year” was unan­i­mous but Quincy Nelson’s “Run­ning Back of the Year ” Award and Shuan Numera’s “Defen­sive Player of the Year” Award were bonuses in an already won­der­ful sea­son full of sur­prises. Pat Ale (full­back) becomes the third Ale to be an All-City player. Paul Hill and Chuck Jones, the sta­ple of Galileo’s defen­sive core as mid­dle line­back­ers head­line a 5-man defen­sive all-city unit from Galileo that includes Jovesa Cakau (defen­sive end) and Waynelle Bucker (cor­ner­back) with Numera at defen­sive tackle/linebacker. Bucker, along with Quincy Nel­son are the lone under­class­men rep­re­sent­ing Galileo. With zero all-city play­ers in the prior two sea­sons, this Élite-8 helped pro­pel Galileo’s his­toric foot­ball pro­gram back into the limelight.
