This picture is of Jim O'Neil of Thomaston, Conn.

I've marched two years with the Spartans in the bass line. This is a picture from left to right of Troy, me and Ashleigh outside the Spartans' buses after our semifinals performance. Troy and Ashleigh march with the Oregon Crusaders. We met in Georgia this year when we were trying to clean parts of our uniforms in the bathrooms because it had rained that day and the field was muddy. We met up after every show we could all the way until we parted ways after the season finished. It was great to meet new people from different places, especially these guys. It was a great time, and I can't wait to meet them on the road again.

Thanks Jim!
