The man behind Lasell men’s hoops: Aaron Galletta Reply

*The 1851 Chronicle recognizes a mistake in the printed version of this story. The quote “If he knows something is going on in your life, he shows his concern. For instance, two seasons ago I had to get knee surgery and he checked up on me,” was printed as being said by junior guard Derek McMahon. McMahon did not say this and the quote has been retracted from the online version of this story. We apologize for the misprint.*

Men’s basketball coach Aaron Galletta grew up in Hyde Park, N.Y. constantly surrounded by basketball. He never thought it would impact him this much, but he is in his eleventh season as Head Coach at Lasell.
