THANK YOU FROM SCOTT GALETTI

Well folks, my time has come to officially say goodbye. I’m on my way to the Mountain West Conference Media Day this weekend and embark to Albuquerque at the end of the month to begin my journey as the voice of the University of New Mexico Lobos.

Rather than working out of the Pasadena office and the various venues in the area, my new home will be University Stadium press box and The Pit scorer’s table.

Thank you so much for making my stay here at the Star-News a memorable one. I was fortunate to make plenty of friends over the course of my stay and the coaches, players and parents were a pleasure to deal with. That includes you chkyrslf.

If interested, you can tune in to our broadcasts on the following two links

I’ll be checking in from time to time and throw in some comments on both this blog and Freddy’s.

FOOTBALL: Quarterbacks to watch out for

With the season rapidly approaching, which quarterbacks should be strong this season? Who is doing well in summer ball?

Darrian Cazarin, Alhambra
I liked what I saw at the Glendale tournament.

Reuben Thomas, Muir
Showed flashes of greatness a year ago.

Chase Rettig, La Salle
Grew in a hurry as a sophomore. Has a strong arm.

Angel Alejandre, Rosemead
Had a strong season last year. With Sumler returning in the backfield, look for big things from this kid.

Isaac Valdez, San Gabriel
Extremely bright with a solid arm and great work ethic.

Morgan Hatch, Temple City
No Do to hand off to, but should have a good year.

Matt Schilz, Maranatha
Injured last season, but the word is that he has been impressive during the summer. Danny Beckwith will be a solid backup.

FOOTBALL: Food Time

In honor of Gotmego, let’s talk about who has the best food in the San Gabriel Valley at football games.

Speaking from experience, I’d have to put St. Francis High School at the top of the list locally. They have just about anything you want and it’s impossible to avoid the barbeque smoke while watching a game there.

Question: What’s your favorite place?

FOOTBALL: Your home for passing leagues

Since we’ve hit the summer football season, which teams have been doing well during passing leagues?

I know Muir reached the semifinals it lost to Canyon at the Saugus Under the Lights tournament a couple of weeks ago.

Besides Mitchell Crockom from Alhambra, who are the other players that will emerge as standouts?

Being a broadcaster by trade, I’ve always kept my eyes open for a great opportunity to get back behind the microphone. I think I’ve found the chance of a lifetime. I am quite pleased to announce that I have been named the new broadcast voice of the University of New Mexico Lobos for football and men’s basketball.

I’ve greatly enjoyed my time with the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group and will always cherish the contacts and relationships I have been fortunate to make during my tenure.

Thank you all so much for being a positive part of my life, even those who have been critical at times. I’ll miss the entire experience. I’ll be around at the paper until July 18.
