MEET JETS FAN ROB GALLOWAY!
Author: NY JETS UK CONTRIBUTOR
It may be the dead of winter but we’re keeping the fire burning here in our Fan Friday series all year long.
The NFL playoffs reach their penultimate hurdle this weekend, with the Championship games, whilst four New York Jets will be in action in next week’s Pro Bowl Games - so stay tuned for that!
We are also looking for more contributors for our Fan Friday series - if you’re interested in answering a few of our questions and being featured then send us a DM or an email at the address at the bottom of the page!
Without further ado, let’s meet Rob!
- Name: Rob Galloway
- Twitter handle: @rghammer6
- Location in UK: Milton Keynes
- Jets fan since: October 2015. Prior to that I’d just followed the sport in a more casual way but attending a Jets game and already loving the city of New York, the Jets just made sense to commit to!
- First Jets memory: Taking my seat in Wembley and watching Chris Ivory and Brandon Marshall go to town on the Miami Dolphins at that game in 2015.
- Favourite Jets memory: It’s hard to choose a specific moment but probably seeing Mike White lead us to victory over the Bengals in 2021. However, a special shout out for any time I see a Jets hat on someone’s head in the UK. It always feels special for some reason.
- Ever visited MetLife? If so, what’s the story?: Yes! I’ve managed to get over twice, once in 2016 and once in 2018. A company I used to work for had an office based in New York and I was lucky enough to work over there for a bit. It was the first time I had experienced a proper tailgate and my UK Jets flag went down a treat with the locals.
- Favourite current Jet (and why?): It’s got to be Sauce. He brings a confidence, a swagger, and backs it up with excellent talent, which is the perfect combination.
- Favourite all-time Jet (and why?): Eric Decker. His was the first jersey I owned, so it’ll always hold a special place in my heart. It might not be the most glamorous choice, but it started it all!
Thanks to Rob for taking the time to answer our questions and for his support of the Jets - hope to see you rocking the jersey and flag at future events too!
