Newport marching band honors Seattle Seahawks
Members of the Newport High School marching band gathered at the school's field in the early hours of Friday morning to honor the Seattle Seahawks as they head to Atlanta, Ga., for their second play-off game.
The band, who performed as part of a halftime show at CenturyLink Field in November, gathered at 6:30 a.m. and did several practice set-ups coming into formation for the "12th Man" symbol. They did not have their instruments but did hear the theme to the NFL played over the PA system.
The Seahawks will take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at 10 a.m. (PT) on FOX. The winner will advance to play either the San Francisco 49ers or the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship the following week.
