New Orleans Saints defensive end Junior Galette: Fear The Beard

Galette spent most of his college career at Temple but was dismissed from school after his cousin, who was his guest at the time, was found with a couple of laptops stolen from dorm rooms. Although Galette moved down to Division II his senior season, he said he never doubted that he would find his way into the NFL.

“I always envisioned that. If I was to tell you I didn’t believe I’d be here, I’d be lying,” Galette said. “It’s a humbling experience to come from Stillman and Temple and all the adverse situations I’ve been through.”

Galette credits some of his improvement to observing the way more established pros handle themselves off of the field. “On the field it wasn’t anything I did. I always play hard,” Galette said.

“Off the field it’s just living right as far as studying a little extra and doing more football stuff. When we get out of meetings, you go home and just get in your bunk instead of playing video games. You are just loving your job. I’m loving football more and more each day.”

    Junior Galette said he going to grow his beard as long as the New Orleans Saints done win a Super Bowl. But if they win he will cut it off this is motivation for him and also should be for the whole Saints team to help him hold up his word. Win the Super Bowl so he can cut his beard this would excite Galette for real to know that he are with and elite team that will make anything happen. Every team in the NFL know the New Orleans Saints is not is push over they is a team that will hit score for score on a team.
