I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year. When we weren’t on the field practicing, we were performing at football games or at community events, bringing the community together with a sense of pride. Being a part of the marching band has taught me to put the betterment of my peers over myself and I have made it my goal to make the people around me the best that they
I am, as of a December 2015, a third year participating member of the Southern Pride Marching Band here at Georgia Southern University. Music and the performing arts plays a huge role in my life, as it has given me the opportunity to travel and perform at various venues around the country. I have also met most of my closest friends through music, sharing experiences that I will cherish for years to come. Since my freshman year of high school, my skill as a percussionist has continued to grow. This past summer, in fact, I was presented with opportunity to march with Alliance Drum and Bugle Corps.

In the first round in ribbon roping we were a 13.3 seconds that put us number one in that performance, but third in the whole go round. I was so excited when we went to awards Friday night, it was my first ever national buckle I had ever won in my life. Then in the second round we were a 12 flat that puts us third in the go again. I was so excited that I had gotten two buckles form nationals in the same year.
For the past three years of marching band, I have worked under innovative leaders that have always reached our common goal: qualify for state finals. So this past year I looked forward to following in their footsteps and make my mark on the band and everyone in it like past seniors did for me. Little did I expect that the marching band season of my senior year would be full of trials and tribulations that was eventually met with hard work and perseverance of myself and my fellow seniors. After the difficult year my fellow students and I had due to a new band director and the school’s detached emotion towards the arts program; the band’s leaders started planning for the upcoming year six months before the marching band season actually started. We covered new policies about respect and accountability to be certain that this year would run smoothly.

Unfortunately, failure came before success. This experience has aided me in all other aspects of my life, because it serves as an encouragement whenever something does not go as planned. Having been apart of different cheer teams for about 5 year. Some of my accomplishments would include first place at nationals, first place winner at state, and first overall best at UCA camp. I was even able to make the SACS Varsity cheer team, which is an unforgettable experience knowing that they are one of the best in town.
He played in the pros for 20 years after high school. Humbaba was as big as Gilgamesh and Enkidu combined. Gilgamesh was not afraid for he only saw the glory of being the state champs. Enkidu agreed to join the team and they crushed all the high schools in the state. The day before the big game the school had a pep rally for the team.
That was probably the most intense game myself or our team have ever played and it felt great to win that game. The funny thing was that our championship game was a walk in the park compared to the semi-final. We beat them by five points making us the Division Two

Pride, poise, and professionalism; these words are the foundation upon which my high school 's marching band program revolves around. When I originally transitioned from middle to high school, the organization centered on the members. Winning wasn 't the only focus of our band, and the year formed a love of band unparalleled by anything. That year, for the first time in our band program 's history, we made finals at our last competition in Havelock, changing our program for the worse. As our program grew in size, the band focused purely on winning.
I will say though, that I liked our band when I was in school. I went to high school at Seaman High School here in Topeka, so it was kind of cool to see a few people I knew in the band. Knowing the head drum majors actually, it was exciting to see her and other people I knew doing such articulate movements. Throughout the show, my girlfriend explained different things about marching band to me like how intense band practice is when they get ready for the shows. I didn’t realize how much timing and practice goes into the movements of marching bands.
Joe Montana is one of the most influential quarterbacks of the late twentieth century. Joe Montana, or Joe Cool as some called him, won four superbowl rings. He received the nickname for always being calm under pressure. He was the king of fourth quarter comebacks, leading over thirty game winning drives in his career, including a famous one in the superbowl of 1989. On that drive, he spotted the actor John Candy in the stands and decided to point it out in the huddle, right before leading his team 92 yards and throwing the game winner with thirty four seconds left in the game.
