Former guard Harry Galbreath passes at age 45

I remember the first couple of times I ever stepped into a Dolphins locker room in the early 1990s and saw Harry Galbreath. I wasn't impressed.

He was listed at 6-1. It seemed like an exaggeration to me because I would look him eye to eye. He wasn't particular muscular. He was very quiet.

Then I saw Harry Galbreath practice, and all of a sudden, my feelings on the guy changed.

He wasn't big but he was nasty. He wasn't muscular but he was country strong. That was the reason he started every game in 1990, 1991 and '92 and played five seasons with the Dolphins from 1988 to '92. The man was a blocking fire hydrant. He was an NFL All-Rookie selection in 1988.

Harry Galbreath has passed away, according the University of Tennessee Sports Information office. He was 45 years old. The cause of death has not been determined.

[Update: The cause of death is an apparent heart disease.]

Galbreath played for the Volunteers and was working at the school as an associate strength and conditioning coach. He played for the Dolphins, Green Bay and the New York Jets before retiring after the 1996 season.

After he retired, Galbreath briefly went into private business and then became of offensive line coach at Austin Peay for two years before serving five years in the same capacity at Tennessee State, then two years at Hampton. He returned to his alma mater, Tennessee, in 2007. 

RIP.

Sorry, just looked like a bunch of classless Jet fans to me. I'm gone to another website, you have a nice night.

Tom, Is that sufficient enough??????

"Goodnight TomBoy"

I'm so glad the Fins didn't pick Kindle and Cody like a lot of people like ARMANDO wanted.

I mean no disrespect to the man... But this isn't his wake... N man I'd pay tha girl some cash to clean my room although if she wanted to live with me that would be her rent I guess ya can say! Just seems like yesterday I was talkin bout rollin over to see her! oh well back to shooting fish in a barrel down here in fla!

Redshirt, Agree with you and LOL at mando....

Thanks Cube! By they way has anyone else noticed what appears to be a ball of fire in the sky from roughly 6AM - 8PM..very intriguing... :(

Like I said before kinda makes the Trifecta look real smart! cause if they were dolphins could you imagine how we would be ripping them for fu@#$%# up!Odrick N Misi are looking like excelent picks!

Like I Said before Grrreat, You'll be mowing a different "Patch" soon enough... Lets face it guys, If it wasn't for that "Patch" of fur, We'd be hunting them.....Actually, I guess we are hunting them...

DolfinTom,

I'll say something about Galbreath. The guy was a great football player. He never got much attention because he quietly, but nastily, did his job and committed very few penalties.

I'm truly saddened to hear he passed, especially knowing he was so young.

Other than that, I don't know what else to say.......other than I'm going to keep the memories and NOT dwell on it. I don't have the time. I'm going to die someday too.

RIP Harry Galbreath.

Talk to home he knows about stuff like that! He may be able to tell you what that big ball of fire is!

No Commie, What was it???????????

Thanks for the support Cuban!! But I think I might actually already have a date tonight!! There is a girl that I have been interested in for a while now but kept it to the side cause I was really into my girl but we will see what happens!! ;)

He should be writing what he says on a sandwhich board and yelling it to cars driving by.

NJ or SS moderator or what ever he wants to call him self at the time...or for all I know could be a few different people.... But the reason I believe it is the same person is cause he just seems to attack Cuban... I think he is more annoying than Home... Hey wait could it be...

HAARP Boils the Upper Atmosphere
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an "ionospheric heater." (The ionosphere is the electrically charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper atmosphere. It ranges between about 40 to 600 miles above Earth's surface.)

Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope: antennas send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a superpowerful radio-wave beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto Earth and penetrate everything โ€” living and dead

Aloco- earlier you asked if I thought that 2008(11-5) was a fluke. Probably in response to what I had written about the jets. My answer is I'm not sure. If the Phins do not improve from last year, then yes it would seem so. If the season goes as plans(actually 11-5 is what I think sounds right) than no, 2008 was the beggining of the fondation of the Parcells, Saprano "era". The difference, and what I'm so fed up with, is the whole love affair with the jets. Who i think are still a middle of the road football team, that has a pretty good defense, and a Qb, that isn't allowed to play after the street lights come on. This was a team that did take advantage of the cards they were delt, and like I said, good for them. but the fact remains that untill they were losing to Indy, when the colts decided they would play the JV squad in the second half. and the game against the Bengals was more of the same. Now they have lost their best running back, and the anchor on their offensive line. Their two best players are bitching about how cheap the franchise is, and the free agents they signed either have children in every state, or grandchildren ready to have a good night story read. Either way IMO they are overrated, and it would please me to watch them suffer!
