Coach Galloway, Is not only a wonderful coach, but he is someone that invests in young men and builds their character. He is patient and always believes the best about the kids he serves. As a freshman basketball player, everyone knows being one of his players is a highlight at Beckman. He helps athletes develop a strong work ethic, be a good teammate and give their best on and off the court or field. He’s made an impact on my two boys and I’m grateful for the influence he’s had on their high school experience.

All Galloway goes out of his way each year to help with the Staff Appreciation Game, working with the players and staff members. Together we have been able to put on the event since Beckman High opened, only stopping because of the pandemic. Al helps students and supports other faculty with a smile and suggestions that help things run smoothly. He is an asset on campus and a great guy. Way to go coach!

Alvin is an amazing coach and an even better uncle. He treats his students as a member of the family and wants the best for them. He makes sure that he treats every student athlete as an individual.

Gway! Well deserved he coached me in football and was a great coach off the field and cared about what happened in my life off the field. He was not only my coach but a friend as well and I know many of my past teammates felt the same.
