galletteYesterday the New Orleans Saints rewarded Defensive End/Outside Linebacker Junior Gallette with a contract extension worth 41,500,000 dollars.  It makes him the highest paid HBCU football player in the NFL.  Gallette played his college football at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  It is a very small school that only has approximately 1,000 students.  This is a huge win for the Small School Football Players, but mostly Stillman.
