2014 Salem News Student Athlete Award profile: Andrew Gallione, North Shore Tech


“He sets a great example for his teammates by his work ethic and academic record,” Worth said. “He was always the first on the practice field and the last one to leave.”

Gallione has volunteered in his hometown at the BevCam community TV station and has also served as caretaker for a local World War II veteran for the past five years. He received the Tech’s John & Abigail Adams Scholarship, as well.

“Andrew is an exceptional human being with a kind and caring heart,” Worth said.

What athletic feat are you most proud of and why?: “Our 2013 playoff football game against Dorchester. We were down 24-0 at the end of the first half. During halftime, nothing was said. We knew what needed to be done. We fought back to win 26-24. It took a team effort with the defense playing as one unit swarming to the ball and the offense shining. The game showed the perseverance, toughness and confidence that North Shore Tech football is all about. This is the game I will still talk about in 50 years.”

Who has had the biggest influence on your life and why?: “My football coach, Paul Worth. He finds a way to get his players and students to reach beyond the point they feel is their absolute maximum. He coached us to have character, sportsmanship, trust and leadership. These are qualities I will take with me throughout life and pass on to others.”

Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?: “As a licensed electrician in Massachusetts. I have worked hard in high school in the electrical field, and obtaining my license is a long-term goal of mine. I will be pursuing a new long-term goal of earning a degree in electromechanical engineering. I see myself working hard as an engineer and, hopefully, leading to owning and operating an engineering firm that specializes in mechanical and electrical engineering.”
