Check Out Our New Uniforms!

2016AprilF2

The Trojan Band Staff unveiled a huge and unexpected surprise to students this morning as they announced that the Trojan Marching Band would be getting all new uniforms in time for the upcoming 2016 marching season. When asked about the bold change, the staff acknowledged that the new uniforms were a departure from the traditional black and gold fare that most Trojan faithful are used to, but that they truly felt it was time for a bold statement in the life of the band and that the new uniforms represented the beginning of a whole new era. The new design was a collaborative effort and involved weeks of research, modeling, and trying out different options. The staff went on to say that the best part of the whole process was how well they kept the secret; absolutely no one knew anything about it.

The uniforms, which were made possible by a large anonymous donation, are set to arrive mid-summer so that the boosters can begin fitting students in time for their official reveal during band camp.  When asked if they had anything else they wanted to say regarding the uniforms, they exclaimed, “Gotcha!”

Happy April Fools’ Day!!!!
