Geoff Jones didn’t start playing the snare drum for Center Grove High School’s band until he was a sophomore. And, other students had started in junior high or during their freshmen year.
For three years he scrambled to catch up with his classmates.
But now he will play with some of the best high school percussionists in the country.
Jones has been selected to the U.S. Army All-American Band. The senior is one of 125 students selected out of thousands to play during halftime at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game in January.
