For the third year in a row the Heritage High School band has had a member selected to be a part of the U.S. Army's All-American marching band that'll perform during halftime at the All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Tx., on January.

Military personnel, fellow band members, and friends and family filled the Heritage High School theater on Thursday, Nov. 10, to celebrate senior trombone player Micah Young, who was given his U.S. Army All-American bowl jacket and gear.

"I'm really honored to be selected," Young said. "I'd like to thank my family, my band family, and Mr. Callaway. Thank you to my mom and dad for all you've done for me."

Callaway described Young as a "great young man," who was nominated, auditioned for, and was selected to the prestigious group.

The U.S. Army All-American marching band performs each year at halftime of the nationally-broadcasted U.S. Army All-American Bowl. By becoming a U.S. Army All-American, Young joins an elite group.

Only 125 high school marching band members among the millions in the United States are selected each year. Band members are chosen not just because they excel musically, but because they are mentally and physically agile, know the importance of teamwork, and they are able to adapt to challenging situations, similar to U.S. Army Soldiers.
