Jacobe Galley of Hotchkiss signed his National Letter of Intent to play football for Colorado Mesa University. He will play either at corner or safety.
Since learning he would play for CMU, "I've been working on footwork," said Galley, a place kicker, running back and defensive back for the Hotchkiss Bulldogs.
Galley is a two-year all-state player and in 2011 and 2012 was named to the Denver Post's 2011 and 2012 Class 1A all-state football team.
A four-year varsity player for the Bulldogs, Galley was credited with 258 total tackles and eight sacks.
As a tail back, Galley rushed for a career 5,062 yards, including 2,111 yards his senior year. At 6 feet and 195 pounds, he said he's too small to be considered for a running back position. "Height isn't a problem, heart isn't a problem, no way," said Galley. "If I get bigger I'll try for it."
Galley said he owes much to his middle school wrestling coach, Richard Flores, and to Bulldog head coach Zac Lemon and his coaching staff. "They taught me a lot throughout these last four years and if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be here."
Galley plans to study engineering.blog comments powered by Disqus
