Acceleration & Strength Training
It is truly difficult to walk the line between strength and speed training for Track and Field athletes but after listening to this talk from Coach Galloway you will walk away with an understanding of the process by which he trains his athletes to be both as strong and fast.
Galloway directs practices for the men’s and women’s sprinters and hurdlers, as well as a variety of administrative and recruiting duties throughout the year.
During his five years with the program, Galloway has guided two NCAA DIII Runner-ups, eight NCAA DIII All-Americans, 13 NCAA National Qualifiers, 11 school records, two ODAC records, 15 ODAC Champions, 43 All-ODAC Performers, 46 All-South/Southeast Region honorees, and an ODAC Conference Rookie of the Year. He was also on the coaching staff of the 2015 Women’s Outdoor ODAC Track & Field Champions.
Galloway graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communications in May of 2007 from High Point University and in 2009, also earned a master’s of science in sports studies from his alma mater.
