Myrtle Beach, SC -- Kam Sallee, a senior kicker/punter for the Beloit College Football team from Huntley, Illinois, will have one more opportunity to display his kicking skills this season after being invited to play in the FCS Senior Scout Bowl in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for the Saturday, December 17, game.
Sallee was originally invited to play in the Division III Scout Bowl but was recently asked to move up to the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly NCAA Division IAA) contest.
Sallee joins teammate Mike Nolden as Buccaneers representing Beloit College on a larger Football stage. Nolden will play in the Tazon de Estrallas (Bowl of Stars) on the same day in Mexicali, Mexico.
The game, in its seventh season, was developed by former D1-FCS players and is exclusively dedicated to showcase the top players in the nation from their respective divisions. The teams will report to Myrtle Beach on Thursday, December 15, with practice the next day. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. (EST) Saturday night at David Shaw Memorial Stadium in the Grand Park Athletic Complex.
Sallee finished up a record-setting career for the Bucs this past season. A four-year letterwinner who played as a wide receiver in addition to his kicking and punting duties, Sallee was 11-11 on field goals during the 2016 season, including a Beloit record-tying 52-yarder against Knox College at Strong Stadium on September 10. He also set a school record with a 40.8 punting average, including a record 75-yarder at Lawrence University on October 1. He was also 30-32 on extra points. When he wasn't kicking he was the team's second-leading receiver with 37 catches for 347 yards.
He completed his career with 28 field goals (28-42), 106 extra points (106-110), 190 kicking points and a 37.4 punting average, all at the top of the list in Beloit Football history.
