Another week of Friday night football is here, and it's time to recognize some of the outstanding band members from area high schools.

  • We start with Nacogdoches High School Band Member of the week, Erick Leon (pictured above right). Erick is a junior clarinet player and "Head of Hats" for the NHS Band. He is being recognized for his strong work ethic and leadership on and off the field. 
  • Ryan Gann is the Hudson Hornet Band Member of the week. He is a horn player, and is the Lieutenant Band Captain. Ryan has an outstanding work ethic, and has stepped up into a leadership role as a sophomore. He does a fantastic job, and is a valued member of the team. Ryan's band "code name" is "Lieutenant Swole".
  • Katie Wilson (pictured above left) is a clarinet player for the Huntington marching band.  Katie always has a teachable, go get-em attitude. She works hard everyday and is an excellent student on and off the field.
  • Kyle Rayburn is a senior tuba, section leader, and Head Quartermaster for the Lufkin Panther marching band.  He is band member of the week for his selfless dedication to serving others
  • Karissa Holden is junior trumpet player, section leader, and Quartermaster for Lufkin.  She is band member of the week for showing dedication to high level performance.

Recognition of area band members happens every week in conjunction with the Friday Night Football Frenzy on KICKS 105.  If your school is not represented here, tell your band director to contact us at for details.
