There were several entertaining pre-game and halftime events at Friday night’s contest between the Altus Bulldogs and Anadarko. Altus High School celebrated the “Patriotic Bulldog” this year in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country on Sept. 11, 2001. A giant American flag was raised at the north end of the football stadium, the National Anthem was played, and a moment of silence was observed at the beginning of the event.

The game ball for homecoming was delivered by helicopter by Air-Evac members, and law enforcement members, members of the Fire Department and EMS were on hand as part of the 9-11 tribute.
