Deone Salther Jacksonville Tight End/ATH Class of 2023 6'2 214
My junior season was a great year for me it taught me a lot on and off the field mentally and physically and helped me be the better player I am now leading to my senior year.
What does football mean to you?
Football means the world to me, growing up watching the NFL and College. I fell in love with the game, and it has taught me so much as a person and I just want to be the best possible football player I could possibly be.
What should college coaches know about you?
That I’m willing to put the work in no matter the circumstances, and I’m a team first guy and a fun person but mean business at the same time
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
My strongest trait on the football field is finding the open grass in the zones so my quarterback can find me, and my blocking ability has improved tremendously, also my ability to reel in every ball that comes my way.
What part of your game do you plan on working on in the offseason?
My footwork and my routes and how quickly I can break out of them
What do you like about playing tight end?
What I like about playing tight end is that it’s a hybrid position mixed with receiver and offensive lineman, so I acquire the skill to be able to run routes and catch effectively and also be able to block and protect my quarterback or my running back on running plays.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting
