About Me

David Bennett Galloway III is a multi-talented athlete poised to start his career in college football in the upcoming season. In high school, he excelled on the football team and track teams. During his four years of secondary school, Galloway received recognition for his academic achievements as well as his performance on the field. He anticipates playing college football in the near future.

College career

Starting in the 2022 school year, Galloway was able to participate in the University of Louisiana Monroe football season and will be returning to play for the Warhawks in the fall of 2023 as a freshman. 

For the past season, Bennett participated in four games and was able to treat 2022 as a Redshirt year. In college football, a Redshirt year allows a student to train and practice with the team without it counting as one of only four years an athlete can compete in college. Therefore, when Bennett starts as a freshman in 2023, he will have the opportunity complete four years with the ULM football program. 

On January 11, Bennett returned to ULM for his spring semester after a much-needed month-long winter break and a family vacation to Cabo San Lucas. While he enjoyed getting away, he is already looking forward to a spring semester filled with academic challenges and football preparations, including winter workouts like football-focused weightlifting and conditioning exercises. The team's formal football practice schedule for spring also kicks off in March 2023 and will last for approximately four weeks as a prelude to more extensive training prior to the fall semester kickoff. 

For David Bennett Galloway III, spending time on the field and in training in northeast Louisiana isn't a major departure from life in South Carolina. The regions share a lot of social and demographical similarities and celebrate southern culture. David Bennett has also fully acclimated to the humidity and is ready to embrace the heat of NELA as well.

When he isn't on the field at ULM, he is exploring all NELA has to offer, including the local nature trails, recreational opportunities on the water, and the various flavors of local cuisine in Monroe and West Monroe. When it's time to visit home, Monroe's airport makes journeying back to Chapin a breeze.

Sports History

As a high school sports player, David Bennett IIII played football from 2018 to 2021 at Chapin High School in Chapin, South Carolina, and ran track in the 2021-22 season at Chapin High. Participation in two sports requires a long-term commitment to physical fitness as the two seasons operate at different times. He credits participation in track with helping increase his speed as a running back, while football provided additional power for conquering new challenges at track meets.

Academic History and Educational Background

Due to his academic excellence and achievement in sports, David Bennett Galloway III of Chapin was recognized as a WACH 57 scholar-athlete of the week. The award required stellar academic credentials, extracurricular achievements, and talent on the field or track. Galloway graduated from Chapin High School in the spring of 2022.

Professional Skills and Experience

As a football player committed to rising through the ranks and reaching the college football level, Galloway learned the value of perseverance early.

Dedication is essential for both a challenging training regimen and developing the stamina required to endure long football games. From following a comprehensive strength training routine to drilling for speed and monitoring his diet for the best performance possible, it's a discipline, and he embraces both the training and the competition. With his particular position as a running back, speed, agility, and balance are musts. A running back needs to pivot, stay focused, lunge, and push through to the end zone.

Sporting also helped Galloway develop the ability to push through difficult times and stay true to himself while being part of a larger team. Participation in a team sport means embracing the common goal and taking direction without complaining, but on any team, each player retains the ability to make snap decisions on the field. Weighing the possibilities and the consequences of failure helped him develop strong decision-making skills when in a high-pressure situation.

Developing these abilities early on makes it easier to move forward in college and professional sports and other career paths.

Philanthropy and Charitable Involvement

Being highly involved in his community, David Bennett Galloway III has participated in many volunteer efforts independently, as a member of his football team, and with friends and family.

A portion of his volunteer work was accomplished at Generations of Chapin, an assisted living community meeting the needs of Chapin's senior citizens. In the wintertime, he participated in caroling and Christmas festivities in Ballentine at the Lowman Home. The Heritage at Lowman is a non-profit ministry dedicated to helping older adults enjoy an independent life while benefiting from access to a supportive community as they age. A bright spot for Galloway was the Senior Citizens Global Eagle Evening in 2020-21.

He was also an extremely active volunteer with the Screaming Eagles Special Needs Athletics. Screaming Eagles is a non-profit dedicated to helping schools and colleges embrace diversity through the formation of realistic athletic environments and programs adapted to meet the needs of any athlete with special needs. Local sports teams and volunteers engage with the athletes to foster a true feeling of community and understanding. For many of the Chapin athletes, such as David Bennet Galloway III, the events are a sharing opportunity that provides the volunteers with a new perspective and new friends.

Accomplishments and Achievements

In addition to volunteering, Galloway stayed active throughout high school in a variety of extracurricular activities outside of sports. He participated in student government each year and counted it as one of his proudest achievements.


David Bennett Galloway III's Chapin career included receiving the High School Sports Award for 2020 football. He was named Offensive Player of the Year, was also nominated for the player of the week in his local newspaper many times, and was also a scholar-athlete of the week.
