The Board of Directors for the Oklahoma Native All State Association announces the presentation of the Annual Oklahoma All State Games, June 16 & 17, 2017, at Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Senior high school American Indian boy and girl athletes in softball, baseball and basketball from Oklahoma public schools will be identified and selected to represent their respective high school and tribal affiliation in this popular gathering of sport competition and recognition. The two day activity begins with a Friday check in and a recognition/award banquet featuring a keynote speaker from Oklahoma athletics. The following Saturday will feature competitive softball, baseball, and basketball games.
“This is our way of encouraging our American Indian student athletes to continue their dream of furthering their athletic positions and giving them recognition for their accomplishments in athletics and academics. Tribal governments, Oklahoma public schools, parents, Bacone staff, and coaches have all been more than supportive and we are very appreciative for the benefit of our Oklahoma public school American Indian students” stated Dwight Pickering, chair of the association’s board of directors.
All association planning committee members, coaches, and tribal officials, have volunteered their time and energy in making this opportunity a unique experience for all involved. The public is invited to come and enjoy the competitions, recognition, and fellowship at Bacone College, a historic college for Indian people, and the host institution. For ticket information, programs, and donations, please call Josh Nichols, committee member, at 918-360-8619 or e-mail him at [email protected] at Bacone College.
