The highlight of the 2020 Greensburg
Salem football season was
reaching the 700-win milestone.
Other than that, the season
didn’t play out as coach Dave Keefer
and his Golden Lions had hoped.
Greensburg Salem finished 1-6
in the WPIAL Class 4A Greater
Allegheny Conference in a covid-19
But don’t let that record fool you.
The Golden Lions are looking to
make a lot of noise this season.
The bright side of the season
was Greensburg Salem was forced
to play a lot of underclassmen because
they had only three seniors
There are only three holes to
fill after the graduation of running
back Alex Briggs, kicker
Wyatt Ramer and tackle Joey
McGough. Briggs and McGough
were two-year starters and twoyear
Up front, the Golden Lions will
be stout with the return of fouryear
starter Bill McChesney, who
is moving to left tackle, Christian
McChesney at center, Caleb Chismar
at right guard and Kaleb Riggs
at right tackle.
“All four players were pretty solid
for us last year, and we saw them
grow into good football players,”
Keefer said. “We have high expectations
for them, and the big thing
is they have a good understanding
of what they are doing.”
The line will be protecting senior
quarterback Hayden Teska, who
hasn’t been able to stay helathy the
past two seasons. Before getting injured
last season, Teska completed
34 of 86 passes for 625 yards and
“Hayden is a heady player.”
Keefer said. “He was having a good
season until he got hurt in the
fourth game. He’s a very poised
young man, does a very good job
on the baseball field and he’s been
in very competitive situations over
the course of his career.
“He understands how to handle
it. He knows how to distribute the
football, he’s very intelligent, and
he understands what we want to
do offensively, and he’s a very
accurate thrower. We hope to build
on what he did last year and expand
Some of the receivers returning
include Donavin Waller, Cody
Rubrecht, Christian Hostetler and
Jerome Wallish, along with newcomers
Matt Wallace and Raequan
The running game will be handled
by junior Rashad Canady and
J.C. Wallish. Briggs rushed for
700 yards and six touchdowns last
Canady rushed for 257 yards
and a touchdown, and J.C. Wallish
“Rashad had a couple nice
games,” Keefer said. “And I don’t
want to overlook J.C. He spelled
Alex as a sophomore. J.C. is a little
more of a blue-collar runner, and
Rashad has a bit more flash and
ability to do some special things. It’s
nice to have two guys coming back.”
