When he’s not speaking or coaching teams, Galen expels his energy by performing improv, playing music and sports, and he runs a non-profit organization called ‘Pass The Hat’ that he founded. Galen lost his brother in a car accident when he was 18 years old and created Pass The Hat to provide financial relief to local families that are victims of similar tragic events.
