Gilbert High School senior Connor Siroky is among 101 marching-band musicians from across the country chosen as a member of the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band.
Siroky will be playing trombone during halftime of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, on Jan. 7.
Each year, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour visits the school of each All-American player and band member to officially recognize and announce their selection to the Bowl.
Siroky was chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 nominees from 47 states. He has been in the Gilbert Tiger Pride Marching Band for four years. He has marched the last two summers with The Academy Drum & Bugle Corps.
He hopes to march with The Academy again this summer, and plans to attend Arizona State University in the fall of 2017 and march with the Sun Devil Marching Band.
He plays trombone in concert band, and marches baritone with the GHS Tiger Pride and Academy.
