Color Guards’ Amazing History! People know that during half time at football games two bands play and in the band there are the color guard. No one ever stops to think about them and how they came to be. The fans just know that they are there most likely to just entertain them. They never stop to think twice as to how color guard was made and the big meaning behind it all.
Color guard is extremely special and important to me. Many ask, “what is color guard?” “What do you guys even do?” When an audience watches a performance, what most people see is a bunch of people jumping and dancing across a football field, in strange costumes with flags and weapons in their hands, to marching band music. It may seem a bit ridiculous and whimsical to someone that has never been to a marching band competition. To me, however, it is one of the most amazing experiences. The rush of adrenaline and the whirl of emotions that come with performing in marching band and color guard shows is ineffable.

At this point I was full on crying because I knew there wasn't a good chance that my brother's name would be called and thankfully, he called out, PJ Doherty, and I went berserk, it was the proudest and happiest moment of my life, I still get chills to this day.

"It took a lot of mental toughness. We 're going to remember this for the rest of our lives." It completed an incredible comeback for the Patriots, who had looked dead and buried after the Falcons scored three first-half touchdowns and an early score in the third quarter to power 25 points ahead. No team had ever come back from more than 10 points to win the Super Bowl, and the Patriots looked to be heading for a crushing defeat. But Brady, who had looked a pale imitation of himself for much of the game, suddenly fired into life in the second half to produce a performance that will go into National Football League folklore.
They come to to a ranch an’ work up a stake and then they go into town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they’re pounding their tail on some other ranch.” (Steinbeck 13). When working hard for a goal, it’s really hard to not blow your stake because most of the ranchers had nothing else to look forward to in the future. Even though George and Lennie didn’t have anyone or anything in their life, they had each other, and the courage to still fight for their dreams which builds the most powerful strength anybody could
He now runs a company and every Sunday he goes and watches his best friend play as a Dallas Cowboy.

So one game got Dak a best friend
While warming up before the game, I feel excited. Excited to be that much closer to doing something I love. Whether I start the game or not when the team huddles up and one of the players leads us in our team chant and the huddle breaks I couldn’t be happier. After the umpire announces the start of the game I immediately feel overwhelmed with stress but it 's a positive stress, this stress makes me want to succeed and prove myself to the upperclassman on the team. This stress makes me want to make every play look effortless and hit every ball over the fence, all these thoughts and feelings take place before the first pitch.

The whole school has a buzz going around it just thriving with anticipation for the upcoming game each Friday. That feeling of watching your team play under the lights is just an amazing feeling. September 4, 2015: It was a normal Friday in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I wake up from my restful slumber way past when I am supposed to at 7 o’clock.
Competitions are a highlight for many members of the band, since they are filled with rival bands, food and music. While marching band members see band having an ultimatum, get a trophy, or don’t try, Band director Mr. Farrell stresses the importance of professionalism, effort and fun. Third year marcher, trumpet player and junior Blakely Parker added, “What beats talent? Effort.” The Mighty Trojan Marching Band stresses working as an individual for a great purpose: the band. Despite all of the work, time and effort put into marching band individually, the band works as one unit to make a great show and
Wilcox 's final piece of advice is slightly less manageable but no less important. He advises all young musicians to, "join a band of people you enjoy playing with," a task not very simple for people who have few choices when it comes to bands to join. Wilcox 's "three pillars of music" closed off the interview, and all related parties left to continue their lives. Wilcox is a very strong example of a broken mold. He plays trumpet well enought to be 1st chair in a relatively skilled band, but he still moves with militaristic discipline reminescent of his darker, bloodier past.
