Forest E. "Aggie" Sale (June 25, 1911 – December 4, 1985) was a standout American college basketball player at the University of Kentucky from 1930–31 to 1932–33. He played for coach Adolph Rupp and was one of Rupp's first NCAA All-Americans.[1]

Sale attended Kavanaugh High School in Anderson County, Kentucky prior to matriculating at UK.[1] As a 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) forward/center (basketball), he was a rather tall player for his era. Sale used his height to his advantage and was noted as both a good scorer and rebounder.[1] In his three seasons with the Wildcats team, Sale played in 50 career games and scored 657 points.[1] He was twice named a consensus All-American, and as a senior in 1932–33 Sale was selected as the Helms Athletic Foundation (HAF) National Player of the Year.[1] That year, Kentucky won the Southeastern Conference regular season and SEC Tournament titles, finished with a 21–3 overall record, and were named the HAF National Champions.[1]

After college, Sale became a high school history teacher and basketball coach before joining the United States Navy and fighting in World War II for a year. He returned to being a teacher and coach, and then from 1964 to 1967 he ran his own Sale Sporting Goods Store.[1] He entered politics in 1971 as a Democrat and was elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives from the 55th District.[1][2] Sale was re-elected four times before ending his political career.[1]

Forest Sale died of a heart attack on December 4, 1985, at St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.[1]
