2008 Army All-American Marching Band
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl, produced by SportsLink, is the premier high school football game in the nation, featuring the country's top high school senior football players. Until this past January, All-American honors and accolades had been reserved for standout football players, but through the efforts of MENC: The National Association for Music Education, the prestigious designation was expanded to include the finest high school senior marching musicians from throughout the nation. Receiving the same level of recognition as their athlete counterparts, these marching band members were selected and honored after an extensive application process before performing in front of thousands of fans on Jan. 5 during the 2008 Army-All American Bowl. The application deadline for members of the 2009 Army All-American Marching Band is quickly approaching on Tuesday, April 15. Applicants must be a high school senior in January, 2009.
