Elon recruit. Galason has a broad shouldered, physical build at 5-foot-9 180-pounds. One of the top overall performers from the event. Ran the 60 yard dash in 6.91-seconds, recorded an exit velocity of 95 MPH, which was one of the top exit velocities of the event. Offensively – quiet, balanced, and controlled with violent hips and hands. Starts in a tall, neutral stance with hands just below back shoulder. As pitch comes in, uses a foot lift and stride to start swing, hands load back and up slightly. Aggressive swinger, gap to gap hitter. Defensively – Throws topped at 86 MPH from the outfield. High-3/4 slot, ball jumps out of hand. Attacks ball with aggression, plays through throws to target with back spin and carry.

Very quiet yet explosive in approach. Neutral stance with hands just above shoulder. Uses a leg kick to start load. Smooth yet small hand load.

New Jersey Games (July 23, 2016)
Galason is a strong, phyisically built 5-foot-9, 185-pound outfielder with gap to gap power. Ran a 7.21 60, had an Exit Velo of 91, one of the top of the whole event.  One of the top overall hitters at the event. Had three extra base hits in the games, including a triple and a double, both to right center. Has most success going to the opposite field. Offensively, sets up in a narrow stance, hands even with back shoulder. Load is started by short foot lift. Hands are loaded back, weight transfer is smooth. Viciously torques hips to generate power. 
Defensively - shows good actions in the outfield, 
high motor athlete. Throws from over the top slot. Throws are firm with back spin and were on target. Throws came in at 83 mph.

Battle at the Border (October 18, 2015)
The 2018 outfield prospect showed much of the same stuff offensively; big hacks, big exit velocity (90 MPH), and an aggressive approach. He is best when he sees it deep when on the outer half and reacts to the ball on the inner half. When he has a dead pull mentality, he struggles. Defensively, he gets good jumps, has good instincts, and runs well. He does, at times, struggle with reads in but he has good recovery skills.
NJ Underclass Games (September 20, 2015)
Galason continues to prove that he has the makeup to play at the next level. Each time I’ve seen him, he’s improved. He had explosive BP; driving many balls to his pull side. His swing plane continues to smoothen out and he continues to harness his aggressiveness more and more. I originally doubted his ability to control the stick but he has put an end to that thought. He covers range in the outfield as he has a good first step. His throws were online and his throwing mechanics have been cleaned up. He showed much better approach steps in the infield but I would still like to see him follow his throws better. On the mound, his accomplishes some good pelvic loading and riding of his back hip down the mound but it is also the reason for the open stride at this point. He has gradually learned how to control the effort levels and continues to smoothen out. His fastball had some sink to it at 78-81 miles-per-hour and his changeup was very effective as it mimicked his fastball in arm speed and spin. His breaking ball has depth potential and is sharp at times.
NJ Open (August 5, 2015) Galason took the opportunity to come to the Open ID and show, once again, just how explosive he is athletically. With the bat, Galason made loud contact throughout the, starting with an improved 89 mile-per-hour exit velocity off the tee. He uses a balanced base and a small leg kick. His swing plane was slightly up-hill in batting practice which created some exciting leverage. He hit best against live pitching when he took a middle-of-the-field, line drive approach. Defensively, he threw and moved well in the outfield and showed some cleaner actions in the infield. He is best projected as an outfielder at this point.
On the mound, Galason showed some improved posture but seemed disconnected with his lower half as his back side struggled to get over after release. He pitched between 76 and 78 miles-per-hour and showcased a tight breaking ball.
NJ Top Prospect Games (July 15, 2015)
Galason was the lone 2018 attendee at the Top Prospect Games and it was due in large part to his maturity and demeanor on and off the diamond. The 5-foot-8 young prospect was very impressive to say the least. He is already a physically built athlete with room for growth. He ran a 7.21 and showed an impressive bat speed on an 87 mile-per-hour exit velocity. He moved very well and was instinctual in the outfield, showing the ability to cover ground. Offensively, he’s hit from a slightly open athletic stance. He uses a smooth load into a firm hitting position and from there he uses an explosive lower ½ to drive the baseball. He does not get cheated when he swings; he’s always looking to hit the ball hard. He hit hard liners to all fields during his BP session, showing good balance throughout. 
On the hill, Galason showed good raw arm strength from his max effort delivery. He lands slightly open and his posture leans towards the first base side. He pitches with an up-tempo delivery and good rhythm and he uses an over-the-top arm slot. His fastball was largely straight and heavy at 78-81 MPH and he showed potential to have an above average 12-to-6 breaking ball at 66-72. Command on the secondary offering is behind his feel for fastball command at this point but this should progress with experience.
