Pep band

By: Jerra Fowers and Marissa Barnes

They’ve been playing through the crowds since 1994. The Fremont Pep Band is semi-voluntary and has helped Fremont have extra school spirit during the rough games. The band alumni even come back to play during the Homecoming football game every year.

“The pep band is a great way to get the crowd energized,” said Trent Thayne, trumpet.

The band showed their enthusiasm while playing as well as showing off their dance moves during some of their songs.

“The pep band brings the party. Without it, it’s just a football game,” said trumpet player, Bryan Gittins.

They would even gain a few members from some students just to dance along.

“I like being in pep band, because it lets me play a variety of music I normally wouldn’t,” said Kelci Maples, saxophone player.

The pep band is consistently playing at the games. Everytime Fremont makes a touchdown, traditionally the band will play the school fight song. Also, when there is downtime or when teams take a timeout, the band will play one of their songs such as “I’m a Believer” by Smash Mouth or “Happy” by Pharrell.

The pep band students are there during most home football games.

“I think they make things loud, lively, and hyper,” said Chris Redford, junior.

The pep band lives up to its peppy name, bringing more enthusiasm to Fremont games.

“I think the pep band also gets the teams going,” said Kenzie Isaacson, junior at Fremont.

It's an awkward thing writing about yourself. So here's an attempt! I love being a journalist, editor, and web specialist for the Paw Print. There's a sense of accomplishment when you see your name in print after writing an article you spend so long on. And there's a passion that comes with writing about things you love. Not only am I a journalist, but I also blog as well. I love to blog! It can give me a sense of freedom to say what I feel with no boundaries. I love laughing. It's hard to explain entirely why, but laughing is the best medicine. One of my favorite quotes is "The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache." -Marjorie Pay Hinkley Be happy. There are brighter days ahead my friends. :)
