Galea Taking In Many Camps

Elk Grove (Calif.) Franklin linebacker Cody Galea has hit several camps this spring and summer, including UCLA's, where he was one of the more impressive linebackers in attendance...

Elk Grove (Calif.) Franklin linebacker Cody Galea (6-3, 225), was one of the more impressive linebackers we saw at the UCLA camp last month.

Galea has one offer, from UC Davis, but he's hoping full slate of camps will net him some more offers down the road.

"I've been busy this summer going to camps," said Galea. "Oregon State, Nevada for their full contact team camp), Washington OL/DL Camp (as a defensive end) and San Diego State then UCLA."

Galea has one more camp scheduled for this weekend, when he'll camp at Cal Poly on Saturday.

The communication lines have been good with several schools, particularly those he's camped with.

"The coaches at all the camps have given me very positive feedback," said Galea. "Oregon State said they like my athletic ability and physical toughness I showed. And then there was Nevada, who liked everything about my play as a Mike linebacker, since they were the only school to see me in real full contact action. I'll be attending their Senior Day on July 31st."

Galea attended Washington's camp as a defensive end, which is where the Husky staff likes him.

"I've been receiving real interest from schools as a defensive end, like Washington, and I did real well at their OL/DL Camp. Washington loved the fact that I battled with seasoned defensive ends and held, or even out-performed most of the talent at the camp. I also received some one-on-one linebacker coaching from Coach (Mike) Cox," said Galea.

He also was impressive at UCLA's 3-Day Camp.

"UCLA said I had great feet, was hard hitting with an excellent work ethic. They called me the ‘big physical Mike linebacker who could cover'. Coach (Reggie) Moore said I have great feet and looked very athletic and Coach (Clark) Lea (UCLA grad assistant), said he liked my toughness and the ability to be an explosive hitter," said Galea.

In addition, Galea is receiving serious interest from Colorado State, San Diego State, UNLV, New Mexico, Fresno State and Northern Illinios.

As a 2008 junior, Galea had 134 tackles, 17 pressures, four sacks, two blocked PATs and was an all-Delta Valley Conference pick for Franklin.
