Gavin Baughman becomes latest South Salem hoops player to star in football

By

South Salem’s football team has done it again.

In both of the previous two seasons, the Saxons brought in a standout basketball player with little to no football experience and turned them into a standout receiver.

In Friday night’s 34-29 win against McNary, Gavin Baughman caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown.

The 6-foot, 190 pound junior was a part-time starter in basketball as a sophomore and was an honorable mention all-Greater Valley Conference selection.

This is the rest of the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Mid-Valley weekly watch list:

Jared Oliver, West Salem football: The senior quarterback passed for 295 yards and three touchdowns on 21 for 29 passing and rushed for the game winning touchdown in Friday’s 36-29 win against Sprague.
