Demond Johnson, a senior football player, has been chosen as the Northland Cable Saluda Athlete of the Month for August.
Demond has helped lead the Tigers to a 2-1 record in its first three games. Johnson leads the team in tackles with 22 and has an interception and a fumble recovery.
Demond is a three year starter on the football team and is a member of the track team in the spring. He is also a model citizen in the hallways and in the classrooms of Saluda High School.
Starting next Thursday, we will publish an Athlete of the Week each week for the remainder of the school year.
