ANNANDALE, Va. (WUSA9) -- An editorial published in a school newspaper at Annandale High School describing an incident where the marching band was kicked off the field during a football game, has gone viral.
The piece published in 'The A Blast', viewed nearly 300,000 times, details the halftime performance of the Annandale High School marching band on Friday November 8th, Senior Night at the football game.
With halftime winding down, and the band still on the field performing, the Annandale High School football coach was eager to get his players back on the field.
Some band parents, and many people commenting on the online editorial, suggest that he may have been too eager.
The coach began yelling for the band to get off the field, despite time still remaining on the halftime clock. The band did ultimately stop their performance short and exit the field.
