As you all know I am a huge small school fan, and I have helped tons of players from Coastal Carolina over the years. Guys like Josh Norman, Lorenzo Taliferro, Matt Hazel are just a few that we have showcased on NFL Draft Diamonds. There were so many more, but one former player I still talk to all the time is Joe Kaleta.
Big Joe is a die hard Chants fan, and this year he told me to keep an eye on linebacker Teddy Gallagher, and let me tell you Joe Kaleta should be a scout., Big Joe will go on his Chant Rants before the game and they fire up Teddy G and company. This week Pat McAfee said the Chants would lose, and boy was he wrong. Not only was he wrong, you let him have it.
Coastal beat down Arkansas State this week and it was because the Coastal defense led by Gallagher was amazing. Teddy Gallagher is not a South Carolina kid, he is from Los Angeles, California and you can see his swag a mile away. I mean the kid has a mullett under his helmet, he is flying all over the field. Number 34 is no joke.
He is easily one of the best returning linebackers to all of college football. He has 130 career tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks in his career, before entering this year.
This year, Gallagher has been terrorizing his opposing offense. He has 21 tackles, 2.5 more tackles for loss and a .5 a sack. The Coastal team looks to have fun on the field, and they are playing at a high level. This week they will have a huge test against #23 Louisiana-Lafayette, but do not count them out.
This Coastal team led by Teddy Gallagher are playing at a high level. They do not believe they can get beat. That is what you have to love about them. I am a big fan of the Chants and an even bigger fan of Teddy G!
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Teddy Gallagher will read this, so I am going to put my heart into it. Teddy never change, bro your playing style is contagious. That is what makes you stand out on the field. The energy, and competitive drive is noticeable. You wanted to prove Pat McAfee wrong so bad. This week they are already doubting y ‘all again. They are saying you do not have a chance against Louisiana-Lafayette. Well, you are a top tier linebacker in my opinion. I would love to have you on my team. Never change, and knock some damn heads off and beat the Cajuns! – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
