     Marching between band and homework is a task well mastered by sophomore Micah Brue as he conquers the Pre-AP academic route and the football field. Brue plays the marimba, not to be confused with the xylophone, during football/marching season, and he also takes on AP Biology. One thing that helps his balancing act are his teachers, and their excitement giving him the confidence to keep pulling through.
     “It can be hard to find time to work, given the long rehearsals,” Brue said. “But I’ve gotten better at balancing my time as I’ve gotten older, and after long hours of practice, we finally get to show off some of our talents.”
     All his hard work goes into practice on the field and in the classroom, but sometimes it also takes more time than planned. Brue said he has stayed up until 3 a.m. to finish a project after getting home from a game. However, he says, the long hours pay off on the field and in competition.
     “The hardest part of marching band, in my experience, is the late night football games,” Brue said. “The easiest part is the music. The music has to be easy so the players can memorize it quickly.”
