Though the Advocate sports department knows defensive players have a tough time winning in any sport, they acknowledge the Staples tri-captain’s accomplishments:
Gallagher, the Wreckers’ center back, was an integral part of a team that won the FCIAC championship and reached the state title game. Gallagher was the team’s shut-down defender. When he was injured at the start of the season, the Wreckers opened 1-2. When he returned, the team went 19-1-1.
Gallagher has tough competition — some of it very familiar. His 5 competitors include Norwalk’s star scorer Andres Torres; Rory Shepard, MVP of New Canaan’s “L” state championship game — and Gallagher’s Staples friend, football star Tyler Jacobs.
