Grinnell, IA -- Kam Sallee, a 6'2 wide receiver/kicker for the Beloit College Football team from Huntley, Illinois, has been named the Midwest Conference Football Special Teams Player of the week for his accomplishments against Knox College last Saturday.
Sallee kicked three field goals and three point-afters and averaged 38.5 yards on four punts in the Buccaneers' 42-32 home-opening win. He also rushed three times for 45 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards. He hit the field goals from 52, 37 and 19 yards, with the 52-yarder tying the Beloit record for longest in program history.
He now has booted 21 career field goals, including five in two games this season, to pull within one of the Beloit career mark of 22 set by Greg Dummer from 1982-85. He also has the third-most point-afters in a career with 81.
Beloit travels to Grinnell College for the MWC opener this Saturday. Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.
