OSU football: Offensive lineman Dylan Galloway retires from football

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State tackle Dylan Galloway is calling it a career.

Galloway has elected to retire from football and leave the university after recently earning his degree, according to SI Pokes Report.

“I’m done with football,” Galloway told Pokes Report in a text message Wednesday. “I was getting hurt so much and I felt like all of my injuries were piling up to where they were effecting me too much on and off the field.”

Galloway started nine games at left tackle last season, but missed three with a right leg injury that he suffered at Texas. He returned from the bench at Iowa State when Bryce Bray suffered an injury.

Galloway also had multiple shoulder injuries the previous two years, limiting him in spring practices. 

At 6 feet 7 and 295 pounds, Galloway was expected to be a key part of the Cowboys’ offensive line as one of three returning starters. Only Teven Jenkins — who could move from right tackle to left tackle — and Bryce Bray return.

But the Cowboys have other options.

Transfer Josh Sills is expected to start at left guard and Ry Schneider is expected to start at center, a position he filled in at times last season. 

Jacob Farrell, Hunter Anthony, Cole Birmingham or Eli Russ could be options at an open tackle position. But none have the experience of Galloway.
