Skyler Sandusky, who recently graduated from Forestburg High School, will put the bow on his basketball career this Saturday.
The Texas 6-Man Coaches Association boys’ all-star basketball game will take place at 2 p.m. at D.L. Ligon Coliseum on the campus on Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls.
“This will be the final rung on the ladder,” said Steve Sandusky, Skyler’s father and coach. “He’s worked hard and earned it. Basketball is his first love, and he’s so competitive.”
“It means everything to play in this game,” Skyler said. “This is the last time I will play basketball and represent my school. I’m ready for it.”
Skyler Sandusky will leave Forestburg as one of the most decorated basketball players in school history. Read more, and see the complete East roster, in the July 12 Bowie News.
