Ryan Mallen, 15, who has marched soprano with the Raiders for the past two years, sent in this one. "This pic was taken this past summer during our "Death Camp." The ladder you see is where our backfield conductor stood. Apparently, before we got there, our field was a popular goose hang-out spot. It was my job to chase the geese off the field every morning before lining and basics. Of course, I always did it nicely." Thanks Ryan!
