BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — For the Southridge High School Skyhawks, Darik Salinas is a jack-of-all-trades. The senior plays 4 positions for the football team as well as multiple positions in baseball and basketball.

Salinas just wants to “do anything to help my team win. Whatever position I am at I want to help my team win.”

He did just that last week in a 56-36 win over Grants Pass, where he tossed six touchdowns, setting a new school record.

Coach Kevin Bickler knew Salinas was special from the beginning.

“I watched him play when he was growing up,” Bickler said. “He was the first guy out on the field and the last guy off. There was just something about his attitude. I knew he was going to be a good player.”
