    It’s been a while. It’s been a while since the Galilean boy’s basketball team wasn’t a State Champion. It’s been while since the little school from Liberty wasn’t standing around a few teammates holding the State Championship banner after everyone else had gone home. It’s been a while.

    The tears and bitter emotion of a semi-final defeat had only just started to fade, even nearly a full 24 hours later. The numbness of going through an awards ceremony after the first time to not be anxiously awaiting a call to hold the State Championship banner was overwhelming.

    But then, from the slightly muffled PA system, at the end the All-State team being announced, Galilean senior Tristan Royalty heard his name.
