I can't believe I just said that cuz I was a Coog from LM!
I love the bands! They truly are the heart and soul of the game - sorry football parents!
Congrats and hope you last to the weekend before Christmas and take it all!

Just joking! Great job Dickinson Gators.
On a side note, Port Lavaca Calhoun Sandcrabs seem to be roling into the playoffs as well and I am hoping to be able to see their 2nd round game next weekend. Anyone who knows how bad PLC was would be amazed at the changes that have taken place in that program.:doowapsta
Some days I wonder whether high school football really is a team sport Faith plays flute in the marching band and I have been able to catch most of their performances. The Gator fans are a great group to watch the game with and enjoy the halftime bands. We sit with the same bunch everytime and it's really fun to be a part of things. A couple of weeks back, when we played Clear Creek was the first time I have been back to my high school in 25 years.
Mont, you know I had to give you a hard time.:dance:
I love highschool football and the marching bands. I played both for a while in highschool and met my wife through highschool band. She was a senior I was a freshman and she was my band buddy! Band was good to me. Very, very good to me.
Great picture of Faith, man she is growing up fast!!
We started going to the Elkins games when my daughter was a freshman in the band 5 years ago. Had alot of good times. Alexandra played oboe and they don't march, so she got to bang on the stuff in the pit. She had a blast. Pretty funny when you look back to the 6th grade and how awful they were. A bad oboe is well....... really bad. But now, fast forward 8 years and she is still playing. She is playing as a fresman in A&M's orchestra. My have we come a long way from the scheech-horn days. her playing is absolutely beautiful. Go get 'em Gators so the band can keep on playing, lol. - Hevy
Doug, I have to admit, the first year or so of flute was mighty painful. These days, she gets on a tear and plays for hours on end and it's a whole lot easier on the ears. She took a huge gamble and played volleyball and did marching band too. Talk about some messed up schedules. Sometimes, I think Stacy could have use a helicopter instead of a Charger. I still don't know where were are playing Saturday, but it's somewhere at 2. With any luck, the band keeps on playing...
Mont, does the band really "march"? I miss the days when high school bands did the military marching thing. This new fangled production stuff they do now days, I just don't get most of the time. Oh well, the kids seem to enjoy it, so I guess that is what matters the most.
Our band really does march. Mr. Mac is one heck of a band teacher and the kids love him. He works them hard and it shows.
Faith picked up 2nd chair flute at Regions yesterday. Pretty impressive for a freshman. We heard today that she may qualify in the top 5 in the entire state soon. She was walking on cloud 9 last night when she got the news.
