Recruit Video Interview: Richmond OLB Signee Wayne Galloway, St. Paul’s High School
by Jace LeJeune
We have finished our 23rd annual magazine cover shoot, but this year marked the third straight year in which we have conducted both a North and South photo shoot. This year, we shot the North photo shoot at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and we shot the South photo shoot at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. Both events were really successful, and we would like to thank everybody who has helped us make both events so special for the players that were involved. Besides taking the photos, Louisiana Football Magazine’s owner Lee Brecheen and editor Jace LeJeune got the chance to talk to some of the top Class of 2020 players in the state of the Louisiana. Both Brecheen and LeJeune talked to the recruits about their top schools, goals for the upcoming season, hobbies, and so much more. For the next couple of months, we will post these video interviews that were taken at both photoshoot events.
In today’s recruit interview, we go to Catholic High School where Lee Brecheen caught up with St. Paul’s High School senior outside linebacker and Richmond signee Wayne Galloway before the start of the season!
Wayne Galloway: One of the best and most versatile defenders in South Louisiana last season was St. Paul’s High School senior safety/outside linebacker Wayne Galloway. At 6-1, 220 pounds, Galloway was a guy that had the natural instincts and coverage skills to play in the secondary, but at the same time, has the frame and speed to become a great outside linebacker. Galloway has had an illustrious career playing for the Wolves as a four year starter, team captain, Freshman Year All-District Honorable Mention; Sophomore Year 2nd Team All-District selection, a 1st Team All-District/Parish selection his junior season, 2nd Team All-State his junior season, and 1st Team All-South Louisiana Pre-Season selection for Louisiana Football Magazine. For a guy that has versatile talents, instincts, and a high football I.Q., there is no wonder how Galloway was able to gather this much success in his high school career according to our own Lee Brecheen.
“Wayne Galloway is one of those kids on film that just gets it,” Brecheen said. “He reads, reacts, and just makes plays.”
That is why schools such as Richmond, Southeastern, Holy Cross, Colgate, and Cornell loved not only his play on the football field, but his work ethic off the field. The five schools mentioned all offered Galloway football scholarships, but in the end, it was the Richmond Spiders that the St. Paul’s defender picked. It was not always easy for the veteran as this past season, Galloway had to miss five games due to injury, but came back in time to help the Wolves make it all the way to the Division I Quarterfinals where the team would lose to the eventual Division I state runner up Catholic High Bears. Despite the ups and downs, there is one thing for certain and that is Wayne Galloway will be making headlines both on the field and in the classroom.
