I got this.
Two steps off the yard line
eight behind the hash.
I can do this
do not look at the crowd
do NOT look at them.
Look at Density
it is just you and the other band kids like it is at practice.
Listen to the drum line
you know their parts
you have listened to their parts every day of school during second block.
Take a deep breath just relax.
*Count down in 3…*
Okay it is time to do this
you have been doing this since band camp.
Your last band camp for high school
the last Sparkman band camp you will be at.
This is yet another last game for you so make it like it is your last.
The drum majors should be doing their salute right about now.
*1… (Random sound effects)*
Density should be running back field now.
Okay one, three, one, two, up, up, up, and step.
Backwards eight to fives at a thirty degree angle
I hope Sierra is lining up with me.
It will be a good show.
Brass behind me
trombones and tubas do not blast.
We need a pure clean sound not a harsh sound.
Do not stick out trombones,
come on calm down you have ten minutes to play do not use your chops now.
Okay now for the tempo change.
Rest, two, three, and step.
Movement one will be done in thirty seconds a minute at tops.
Movement two here we come
turn and step.
*Haley’s solos starts*
Please Sierra and Rachel make this curve good

The past three runs Thursday was great

I believe in you.
Turn, Turn, Turn, Turn.

This cord can be perfect.

*Dance for me robot*
This is it time to act like a robot,
Do something corny something that nobody else will do,

No two people will have the same thing out here.
*Sound of a robot powering down then back up*
Let’s make Mr. G proud.
1 and 2 and 3 and up, left, right, left, look at your hands, left.
Down, peek out, wave to the crowd or grandma as Mr. G would say.
Then turn to the right
