Fredericks’ own marching band will be performing for the halftime show during the homecoming game. It’ll be a sight to see and have many familiar faces. The crowd will need a lot of school spirit to cheer on not only the football team, but our performance and marching band for this year as they get ready to knock off some socks.

Anthony Cohernour: I think we will do well to the best of our ability, no live performance is perfect there will always be mistakes.
