GM Ryan Cruthers on Gallo “Grant has been a loyal and hardworking member of our program since our first day. This is a very proud day for us an organization and hard to put into words what it means to us. Grant has dedicated himself to getting better everyday and this is a very well-deserved commitment, he has been a rock for us on the blue line this season. Grant will be a shutdown, puck moving, solid defenseman for Coach Roll and I can’t wait to see what he does at the next level.”
Grant Gallo on heading to Nazareth College “I would like to thank Ryan Cruthers and the entire Charlotte Rush team and staff for giving me the opportunity to further my hockey career at Nazareth College. Day in and day out the players and staff never gave up on me and always pushed me to be better, and for that I couldn’t be more thankful. It’s a special thing to stick with the same program through all of juniors and see the program grow into the powerhouse it has become today. The past three years while living in Charlotte I have grown tremendously on and off the ice. I have found my second home, year-round here in Charlotte thanks to the Rush. I would like to thank Coach George Roll and Coach Eric Sorenson for this opportunity. I am very grateful to become apart of such a high-class organization and I look forward to my next four years of being a Golden Flyer.”
Grant Gallo becomes the 7th players to commit to a NCAA D-III school since the season started. Gallo currently has 22 points in 29 games.
