Alumni Edges Varsity with an INT to Seal the Game
After the Varsity and the Alumni took their turns to mercy-rule (21+ pt lead) over the Frosh Soph, they engaged in a heatedly tight matchup for bragging rights. The Alumni didn’t take long to score with a touchdown strike that came so easily that the Varsity began to worry the mercy-rule would be dealt to them as well. The anxiety turned out to be unnecessary because in the end, neither team reached the 21-point mark.
Galileo’s first reunion for football alumni was an all-day flag football tournament with lots of smiles, just enough food, some trash talking, and a lot of points on the board. About 50 attended the inaugural that started with the kickoff at 11AM and the last touchdown scored at about 5PM. The coaches team (Coaches Know Best), in the day’s first match, warmed up against the young cubs (Super 6+3), this season’s frosh soph team. Assistant coach for the 2004 frosh soph team, Gary Tran (c/0 ’99, ’98 Champs) intercepted 3 Josh Lu (2014) passes to help CKB top the Supers, 36-6.
