From the story above, Gallagher talked to Nittany Sports Now about playing both football and basketball in college.

“I definitely talked to Penn State and Pitt about it already,” Gallagher said. “They definitely want me to try it out. They know it’s gonna be hard, and I also know it’s gonna be hard. All of them do the summer workouts and those type of stuff and worry about the grades. But I think it’s something I want to try out, and they said they’ll always be there for me if one of the sports doesn’t work out.”

We also asked Gallagher which sport he has the most fun playing right now. Here’s what he said:

“I’m not gonna lie, I think it’s football. Football you have so much fun, you’re playing under the lights, you’re playing in front of a lot of people. … Being under the lights and all the hype, it’s very fun with all the people outside.

“Basketball, I think is more serious and you have to do it every second. Being in one gym, it’s very clogged up, and it’s just the decision making.”
