Who was Ahmaad Galloway?
Ahmaad Galloway had an impressive career playing football at the University of Alabama. He earned recognition from the Denver Broncos, who picked him in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, his senior year never played out to its original plan because he sustained a knee injury in an early game against Southern Mississippi which prevented him from playing for the remainder of that season. Despite this, Ahmaad worked hard and eventually started his assistant coaching career at Oak Mountain High School in 2010 under Head Coach Jeff Harris. One year later he was hired as Thompson High School’s assistant coach by head coach Caleb Ross and by 2013 he was a head coach himself at Munford High School. It goes to show that despite life not always going according to plan, you can still churn out success if you stay the course with dedication and hard work.
