The Redcoats are coming (back)


Hundreds of former members of the Redcoat Marching Band are expected to take the field in Sanford Stadium on Nov. 9 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Redcoat Band Alumni Association. The group’s goal is to have 900 band members on the field before and at halftime of the UGA game against Appalachian State University. The Redcoat alumni formed the association in 1973 primarily to help raise money for the band and to keep alumni band members connected. The group’s web site now tracks about 4,000 Redcoat alumni.
