EUPORA – He wears number 34 as a tribute to Walter Payton.
When not on the football field, he likes to relax and spend time with his family and he just might be one of the most selfless athletes playing high school football.

That starting position is not one that came easy to Salley, who coach Junior Graham said “struggled to get on the field in 7th and 8th grade,” but Salley was more than willing to put in the work necessary.
“It took hard work, dedication and listening to people who played before me and really applying their advice,” Salley said.
