Sean Salisbury grew up in Escondido, California where he was a standout athlete in the community. A graduate of University of Southern California, he currently ranks fourth in the school’s all-time leader in passing yards and completions. Sean was also a member of USC’s Skull and Dagger honorary society for excellence in both academics and athletics.
The former standout quarterback for USC began his NFL career as a walk-on which he parleyed into an illustrious 10-year NFL career — most of which with the Minnesota Vikings.
In 1997 Sean joined ESPN as a sideline reporter for college football games. In 1998 he was named an original analyst for NFL 2Night — the five-night per week league news and information program on ESPN2, and a contributor for Sunday NFL Countdown. Currently Salisbury has broadened his talent base and serves as an ESPN Radio host and SportsCenter analyst.
During his days as a professional athlete, Salisbury founded the Sean Salisbury Passing Camp which provides football training and leadership skills for young people, and often made appearances at various charity events. Today he hosts an annual Celebrity Golf Tournament from which all proceeds go towards college scholarships for students in the San Diego area.
In his spare time you’d most likely find Sean golfing, reading or riding Harley Davidson motorcycles.
