The Mighty Galileo Lions roared on Thanksgiving Day in the Turkey Bowl and beat the Lincoln Mustangs in a very exciting game with a score of 34 – 30.  This was the 90th Football Championship for San Francisco Public High Schools, and was Galileo’s 17th win for the Football Championship Game, more than any other high school in the school district.  Our players were outstanding in  this very exciting game!  And equally as exciting as the game were the Galileo Cheerleaders!  They looked sharp, cheered well and contributed to the victory!  Our stands were packed and everyone had a grand time!  Go Mighty Lions!
