"He committed and is really excited about it," Patty Galippo said. "It's awesome. Now he can focus on his senior season and not have to worry about any distractions."
Chris chose USC over Notre Dame and UCLA. His coach Troy Thomas talks about what kind of player Trojan fans can expect to see:
"What most guys say is that he's big and fast, but the thing that separates him from most guys that are getting recruited at the Division I level is that he has a very strong character," coach Thomas said of his standout linebacker in an earlier interview with IrishEyes.com. "He's a really hard worker. He gets great grades and he's very well respected in our community. Obviously he's respected on the field because of what he does, but he's a well-respected guy off of the field, and I think that's what going to separate him at the next level."
"He's a strong guy, a fast guy that can hit people," Thomas continued. "He came in to our school with a lot of hype behind him. People thought he'd come in and do special things, and he has, but treats the young guys with a lot of respect and he wants them to be as successful as he is. He has a lot of respect for the ninth and tenth graders. He's willing to take younger guys under his wing and so many younger guys look up to him.
"He doesn't want it to be Chris Galippo's defense. He wants it to be Servite's defense. He does the same things for the school. He's just a fun guy to be around. A lot of people are drawn to him. He's very enthusiastic about everything about our school, not just about football. He's a well-rounded guy."
