2016 Game 1: SAN LORENZO

Lions Win Season-Opener After Squan­der­ing Big Lead

Galileo V 14–06 20
San Lorenzo V 03–14 17

img_5543 Senior wide-out, Dono­van Has­son made a few acro­batic catches along with his first TD recep­tion of the sea­son to pace Galileo in a game that almost got away. Up 14–0, Galileo allowed San Lorenzo a short field which resulted in a field goal in the wan­ing sec­onds of the first half. In the sec­ond half, a botched snap over the head of senior punter, Nick Bus­tos, put San Lorenzo in the red zone. A few plays later, San Lorenzo scored on a touch­down recep­tion. Galileo did man­age another score but once again the Lions con­tin­ued to show their gen­eros­ity by throw­ing an ill-advised pass across the field that was picked off and returned to their 15. Three plays later, it was a brand new ball game when Galileo allowed another touch­down over the top of their pass coverage-the Rebels had pulled within 3 in a 20–17 game.

2015 VIDEOS

The youth­ful Galileo var­sity lions fin­ished league play with a 1–5 record. With a mix­ture of aca­d­e­mic issues, injuries, and behav­ior sus­pen­sions, the Lions could not find any sort of con­stancy through­out the sea­son. After beat­ing Bur­ton for their first win, Galileo was in the dri­ving seat for a play­off spot but nar­row losses to Wash­ing­ton and then Low­ell in over­time, sealed their fate.

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.
