Sully Buttes Class of ’89 Football Team to Reunite in Onida Friday

This Friday night the Sully Buttes Charger football team will host Herreid Selby Area to cap their Homecoming Week of festivities.

Onida is also remembering the 30th anniversary of the State Championship team of 1989, and runner-up of 1990, with a gathering of the players.

Coached by Steve Quintus, the Charger gridders lost four times from 1988 to 1991.  They won the state title against the Garretson Blue Dragons 40-12, to complete a 12-0 season.  In 1990, the Chargers lost the rematch to Garretson 50-36, and went 11-1 on the year.

There are many notables from that team that are still in the area, and some with children of their own, now playing for the Chargers.

Players are asked to meet at the game, with a gathering planned in downtown Onida following the game.  If you know of any players from that squad, please get the word out, and ask them to attend that night, if possible.
