WRAL: Gallaspy talks parenthood, patience and nickname “Reggie Bettis”

Published

WRAL caught up with senior RB Reggie Gallaspy who is coming off a career day in the Pack’s win over Boston College.

Gallaspy goes in-depth to talk about how being a father has completely changed his outlook on the football field, how it helped him with his patience and focus.

“That helps my leadership, I helped like that helped me a lot on the football field. Now, I’m more of a vocal leader than I was before,” Gallaspy said. “Now, I try my best and speak up when I see something that needs to be corrected or see something that somebody needs help with. I feel like me opening up more helps them see things not only how I see things as a 21-year-old but as a parent as well. (WRAL)”

He also goes into his nickname and Instagram handle.

Strength and conditioning coach Dantonio “Thunder” Burnette began calling Gallaspy, “Reggie Bettis,” after (former Steelers RB) Jerome Bettis during the spring of 2018 and it’s a comparison that stuck. (WRAL)

To Gallaspy, it’s wasn’t just Bettis’ powerful runs that he emulated, it was his leadership and role as a teammate, he told WRAL.

“When he was outside the field, he was the type of guy who told his second string running back what’s there so that next guy can go out and play the same way, so he won’t miss a beat. He was never really a selfish guy, he always made sure everybody was on the same key.

“I just like the type of person he was, I try to make myself look just like that. That’s what I love about Jerome Bettis. (WRAL)”

Gallaspy has recently changed his Instagram handle and Twitter handle to ‘@theBus25‘ which was Bettis’ nickname while he was still playing.

Make sure you check out the full interview because it really gives you great insight into what drives Gallaspy and what has made him the player he is today.
