Jack Gallier Mahomet Seymour DL Class of 2024 6'1 240

Jack Gallier how was your sophomore season?

My sophomore season was a huge success for the team and me personally. It was my second year playing Varsity and our team went 11-1, losing in State Quarterfinals. It was a great run and so much fun! At DE/DT, I was second in tackles with 92 total and made All-Conference and All-Area first team selection for the second straight year. I also had the honor of being named Academic All-State.

What does football mean to you? Football means everything to me. The rush of Friday Night Lights and playing with my brothers is unlike anything else. I've played other team sports, but nothing compares to high school football--the game and the relationships it builds on and off the field. Making memories with my brothers is what it's all about. What was your favorite memory from last season? My favorite memory from my sophomore season was making Playoffs for the first time since 2017--the whole community was behind us. I'll also never forget playing on starting defense with my brother who was a senior last season--I'm going to miss playing with him a ton. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My strongest trait is a combination of things--my physicality/strength, my mental toughness of "bend don't break," my attention to the craft and mobility through my hips and ankles. I consider myself a DL technician, which I credit a lot to Coach Salomon at FIST Football. He's taught me so much! What should college coaches know about you? I didn't really like youth football until my 6th grade year, but then something clicked. Since then, I've devoted so much time and attention to my development from lifting to mobility/flexibility to the DL craft. I also am proud of my leadership skills and how much I've grown as a leader. I will not be outworked! What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? I have dedicated a huge amount of time and attention to a handful of items which I felt needed improvement: mobility/flexibility, bending and my pass-rush moves, which I feel all needed my focus in the off-season. I also have had a focus on nutrition this off-season and gaining good weight--I've gained 20 pounds since last season. What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? Most important, our first game is against Morton who we lost to in Quarterfinals last season and my team has a countdown to that rematch. We want to beat Morton. Second, my goal is to make first-team All-State, repeat as Academic All-State and exceed 100 tackles for the season. What do you like about playing in the trenches? War is in the trenches. It's where the dirty work is done and not everyone has the mentality to do that, but I love it. I love the grit involved and I love the technical aspect too--the handwork and footwork--makes me love the trenches. What game are you most looking forward to this upcoming season? I am most looking forward to our rematch against Morton.
