Somalis Future Basketball Star - Feb 5, 2006

Greg's Articles

With so many Somalis playing the game of basketball, we still have not received a player to compete the premier stage of the game. This however is about to change because of so many young Somali brothers and sisters playing more organized basketball in  high school and college  level.
One of these young players who is about to change the game of basketball in the Somali community is a 6’2, 180 lbs name Salah Abdo (188-G-89). Salah who was born in Somali is seventeen years old phenomenal who currently plays for St. Marks Preparatory School outside of Boston, USA.
Salah took up the game of basketball six years ago and has ever since excelled in playing the game. In this short period of time Salah was invited to “Big Tim” tournament in Las Vegas for the last two years, three times to New Jersey’s Reebok invitation, AAU nationals in Florida and Washington DC summer invitation.
Only at seventeen years of age Salah is seen as a role model for the young Somalis in the greater Boston area. Salah is not only an exceptional basketball player but he is also a great student who believes that education is the key to success.  When asked about obstacles that he had to over come in playing basketball he responds “people double me because of where I come from, but I let my actions speak for me”.  Also about being consider the best Somali basketball player at his age Salah responds “I am just trying to put Somali on the map and it will happen soon”. 
I wish Salah all the success on and off the court and maybe one day we will have a Somali born playing in the NBA or WNBA.
