Stan Sallee, Tony Casillas, and out-going Chamber President James Duggar.
Howe Will Be The Chamber's 2006 President
I missed significant
portions of this banquet while also covering the Baseball
Dinner (w/ Coach Gary Ward). The Chamber installed new officers and made
their annual awards. I'll try to get a list of the awards and update this page
later. -- Ted 2:45pm Sunday (see below)
Oklahoma Sooner and Dallas Cowboys football star Tony Casillas met Collinsville's
future Mayor (Stan Sallee) in 1983 at the University of Oklahoma where they
were both students. Tony thanked the Sallee and Bayouth families for a long
time friendship. Casillas' speech to the Collinsville Chamber stressed "perseverance
leads to success".
Casillas was the guest speaker for the Chamber of Commerce Installation Banquet
Saturday Jan. 28th at the CHS Commons..
Principal Cory Slagle greeted Tony Casillas after the banquet and reminded Tony
they had played football against each other as youth in Tulsa.
Casillas played for four NFL teams and won 2 superbowls with the Dallas Cowboys.
He related his steps along the road as a youngster in Tulsa, switching from
baseball to football, success at East Central High School and OU before the
National Football League.
