Credit big bro.
Before games, Mercyhurst College sophomore defensive end, Dustin Galich, applies black paint underneath his eyes that by the end of the game is running off his face from him sweating.
Thank his older brother, Nick Galich, for inspiring Dustin to dawn the war paint.
“I played football with my brother at McDowell (High),” Dustin Galich said. “I saw him do it when I was younger and I was going to copy him. So I do straight across (the bottom of his eyes) down to the little (beard) that I have. I saw him always do it.”
Nick attends Edinboro, but does not play football.
“He’s in the education program just living the dream,” Dustin Galich said.
Mercyhurst (3-2, 1-1) will try to bounce back from a 30-27 homecoming loss torival Gannon in Saturday’s PSAC Weset game against Indiana (Pa.). The Crimson Hawks (2-2, 1-1) are coming off a 19-0 win against No. 25-ranked Edinboro.
