Galea'i Is Looking Forward To Jan. 17 Visit

The Trinity High School football team in Euless, Texas is not used to putting up the pads until really late in the season. That's because of players like offensive lineman Lemaefe "Junior" Galea'i. So when the Trojans lost Monday in the weather delayed regional final in the Texas Class 5A playoffs it was tough. DeSoto ended the Trinity season with a 48-41 win over the always tough Trojans.

"I've been good," said Lemaefe Galea'i of the loss. "We had a good season and we played hard."

Galea'i was even laughing during the call as he is light hearted young man who likes to have fun.

Asked about how he felt he played this season, Galea'i was very upbeat.

"I feel good about it especially because I was playing another position," said the Cowboy commitment from this summer. "I was at right tackle instead of guard. It was a good challenge and I really got better at pass blocking. They taught me the kick slide (pass blocking technique)."

Asked about his plans for the holidays and beyond, Galea'i answered, "I'll just hang out next week and eat. Then the next week I'll start regular workouts and then in January I'll start full workouts. I'm going to take my official visit (to Oklahoma State) on January 17 with all the other commitments."

That weekend is the major visit weekend with all but a few of the Cowboys commitments making their official visits that weekend.

Also, Galea'i said he is currently 6-5 and still weighing around 320 pounds having not dropped any weight during the season. "McDonalds," he said.

Also, we asked him if he caught up with future OSU teammate and DeSoto wide receiver Chris Lacy after the playoff loss to the Eagles on Monday.

"I did," Galea'i said laughing. "I told him we were going to have a long talk when we got to Stillwater."
