For years, students in the O'Gorman High School marching band have been waking up extra early to head to practice.
Since July, these talented kids have been working hours on their marching band show.
There are about 140 students in marching band and between the wind instruments, drum line, brass and others, these students have been working hard all summer long.
As they prepare for their new show, they say they are grateful to be able to practice in these early morning hours, avoiding the highest heat of the day.
"To be out there, it is just a little more comfortable doing what we're doing and we still get hot and sweaty and all like that," O'Gorman Director of Bands Duane Niles said. "We really don't do too much night time practices. The kids are so busy."
Niles says right now his Marching Knights are just putting the finishing touches to their show.
“It has been going real well. The kids have been doing really well. We've given them challenging music and the drill. We have it all plotted on the field and ready to go and now we just have to clean things up and that is what takes most of the time for us," Niles said.
These talented kids will work about 100 hours on this year's show. Their first performance is on Friday at the O’Gorman High School Football game.
