One-on-One with Millard North's Hunter Sallis

The 6'4" guard averaged 22-points and 4-assists a game in his junior season. He led the Mustangs to the Class A State Championship game and finished with a 24-4 record. Sallis said his game really improved during the season.
"I feel like I got more athletic, a little stronger, I have become a better shooter,and a better team player, so I thought I improved a lot."
