Whether you graduated one year ago or thirty years ago, the Booster Club invites you to play alongside former teammates or to just sit back, reminisce, and cheer on our teams from the past and present. All former SHS players interested in playing in the alumni game should contact (918)775-1007 or private message the booster club on Facebook at Sallisaw Basketball.
