The Glasgow Scottie Marching Band performed at their debut march of the season during the Scottie Homecoming game on Sept. 20. At center Homecoming King Wilson Overby leads the drum line. The band is under the direction of Glasgow High School Band Teacher Todd Truscott who began his career in Glasgow this year.

Glasgow Scottie fans were treated to a special performance by the Glasgow Pep Band at the Homecoming game Sept. 20. After five solid weeks of preparation, the pep band became a marching band at halftime.

"We wanted to show the town how good the kids can be," explained Todd Truscott, new music teacher and band director. A Glasgow High graduate himself, Truscott took advantage of the opportunity afforded by the big Homecoming weekend to "show off the kilts."

The GHS pep band had not done a half time show in quite some time. Truscott, with good memories of his time in school here, wanted the community to see the kids doing something other than "sitting in a seat."

The pep band plays dozens of songs at each appearance they make at Scottie events, though Truscott says, "Gimme Some Lovin'" is their best. Those who missed the Homecoming performance will not have a chance to see a marching demonstration again until next season. However, the pep band will be performing in the stands at every home football and volleyball game through the rest of the season.

Truscott intends to continue to build on Scottie past traditions and says the band members will be working as hard as they can to get better and better. "We want to make the Scotty band the best around."
