Lions Win Season-Opener After Squandering Big Lead
Galileo V 14–06 20
San Lorenzo V 03–14 17
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.
Galileo’s varsity and frosh soph football teams travelled to Novato on September 20th for a 4-team scrimmage with host Novato, Windsor, and Analy.

Galileo will face 3 new opponents in 2016, San Lorenzo, Hercules & Piner. Oakland was slated as game 4 but as of August, the game was cancelled due to a scheduling error.
Last Update: AUGUST 2016
Coach Mark Huynh will be leading the program into his 8th varsity season. Coach Blacksher will be tasked with coördinating the offense and Coach Carton, the defense. Returning to help with the line is Anthony Lam.
It’s a well-known fact that champions are made in the off-season. (June Camp & Summer Camp are open to all Galileo athletes-if interested, please contact Coach Mark through the “Contact Us” page.)
GAME WRAPUP: Hasson’s 2 INT and TD Highlight Purple Win
PURPLE 00–06 06
ORANGE 00–00 00
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.
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.
