‘Back on Track': Ej Gallup Building Fulton-Montgomery Program
Ej Gallup has so many notable accomplishments already on his resume but his new endeavor as head coach of the Fulton-Montgomery Men’s Basketball Program has proven to be a challenge. Gallup took the job about 15 months ago and everything, of course, shutdown and they did not have a season last year. Now he is preparing for a full season next winter and has been on the recruiting trail. So who has he recruited and what has been able to do even with the Covid limitations? Listen above and read below for some updates!
- Jordan Jackson, the former Mekeel Christian Academy state championship point guard, has committed to play for Gallup. He is going to use Fulton-Montgomery to get back on track and Gallup says that he and his program are here in the Capital Region to help kids like Jackson pointed in the right direction.
- Gloverville's Joey Rowback was Gallup's first commit and he is very excited about what he can bring to the table. Rowback is a 6'4 combo guard who was able to exceed the 1,500 point threshold at Gloversville.
- Gallup was able to go to a showcase down in Long Island recently which was the first time he was able to actually go into a gym and see who could be good fits for his program. As the AAU season ramps up, Gallup's access to the normal day-to-day activities of a head coach should start to sink in. These players have not had a gym for an entire year so Coach Gallup expects their hunger to match his to get back in there and get things done!
