An inspirational figure, Salz, an orthodox Jew originally from Philadelphia, is a running back for the Texas A&M University Aggies. He wears a yarmulka under his helmet and is an orthodox Jew, even though it interferes with his sports aspirations. He sits out games or quarters that take place on Shabbos.

Salz wears the number 39 on his jersey, chosen in honor of the 39 types of Melacha that are forbidden on Shabbos. Salz is believed to be the only Orthodox Jew on an NCAA Division I football team.

Im more inspired by people that don’t deliberately put themselves in situations that make it hard to observe torah and mitzvos. Sorry.
