2020 REVIEW

Galena turned in its second straight 6-win season last year, going 6-2 overall, including a first-round playoff loss to Frontenac. “The best part about last season is just that we got through it,” says head coach Beau Sarwinski, “It was a tough year for our coaches and kids, but we made it through…not knowing from day to day who was quarantined or what you would have for practice due to the pandemic. We learned that every day is a great day, and to make the most of each day we get.”

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

I don’t think there’s been a more consistent program in my time here than the Galena Bulldogs. You always know that you’re going to get a tough, physical team with a smart, athletic quarterback with running backs who run hard. “We graduated two good running backs, so we will have some new ones out there this season,” coach Sarwinski says, “Our kids understand this is a process of hard work and playing for each other. It’s about our community, our school and our team. We’re going to need leadership from our quarterback, Brett Sarwinski, and our tight end, Tyler Little. Both of those guys have played in a lot of big games.” Both Sarwinski and Little earned honorable mention All-State recognition last season. They’re just straight up outstanding athletes. The Bulldogs will have a chance to get their feet underneath them early, starting the season with three straight games at home. They end the season with three straight road games. “We are going to have to improve in all areas of the game every day and every game,” Sarwinski finishes, “Our goals are the same as they are every year. We want to compete for a district and a state championship.”
