Early and college careerEdit
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Galette graduated from Saint Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey in 2006, then attended Temple University, where he played for three seasons. He received honorable mention on the 2006 Sporting News Freshman All-American team as a linebacker. He switched to defensive end for his next two years. After being suspended from the team during his junior year, he transferred to Division II Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for his final season, where he was named to the all-SIAC first team.
Galette was not drafted in the 2010 draft. He signed with the Saints as a free agent. His energetic play made him a fan favorite during the preseason, and after he blocked a punt and registered a sack in the Saints' final preseason game, Galette was selected for the Saints' 53-man regular season roster.
