|Position:||Assistant Athletic Director/Equipment & Licensing|
|Alma Mater:||Washington State '94|
J.T. Galloway is in his 11th year as CU’s director of equipment operations, having joined the athletic department on April 4, 2005. In 2011, he also assumed the role of licensing director, as he is now in his third year coordinating and managing all phases of CU’s licensing, logos and imaging and was thus promoted to an assistant athletic director.
Galloway, 47, oversees the equipment needs of CU’s 17 intercollegiate sports, but he has reduced his day-to-day obligations with the Buffalo football program as he is transitioning more and more into his licensing duties. He is a certified member of the Athletic Equipment Manager’s Association (AEMA), a status he attained in 1995 upon entering the profession full-time.
He became the fourth person to hit double figures in years serving as the equipment head in CU history. Lee “Silver” Akins handled the chores for 34 years (1936-69), with Bill Crowder heading the area for 17 years and Mike Smith just under 11.
He graduated with a degree in sport management in 1994 from Washington State University, where he worked all four years of his college career as a student employee in the WSU equipment room. He began his professional career as an equipment intern at the University of Virginia in the fall of 1994 and worked there six months. He then moved on to the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons, where he was an assistant equipment manager for the 1995 season.
He returned to the college ranks as the football equipment director at Wake Forest from 1996 to 1998 before heading west to Arizona where he would spend the next six seasons as the associate director of equipment.
Born May 10, 1968 in Columbus, Ohio, Galloway graduated Gaither High School in Tampa, Fla. A sports fanatic, he enjoys all sports, especially golf. He is married to the former Kelly Christy, a registered nurse, and the couple has two children, Katie (16) and Collin (13). J.T. stands for John Thomas.
