CHICKASHA – Sahlih Butts already has made a big splash as a Drover in his first season at USAO.

Butts came to USAO as a senior, and he said he and his teammates instantly began to get along well.

“I guess you could just say we kind of clicked right when we can into school,” he said. “In practice, we just get better and better … with each other. We learn each other. Everybody likes each other.”

As conference play begins, Butts says he’s just eager to get out there, play and show what this year’s Drover team is all about.

“Everybody is excited. We want to come in here and continue on what we’re doing,” he said. “Just making an impact as a team on and off the court representing our school.”
