2009 ALL-CITY LETTERMEN
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.
