People think that flag line can't compare to dance line and cheerleading. As spirit organizations we have our similarities and differences. We have to go through tryouts, after school practice, early Saturday morning practice, Friday night football games, halftime performances and band competitions.
Twirling a flag is not as easy as other think it seems. Twirling a flag can be fun. You have to get dramatic with it. You have to be graceful with it and a little wild with hair flowing. First there’s tryouts. Tryouts start off as a clinic, which shows us the basic. We learn how to do carve, blue devil, sunshine, windmill, spin drops, speed drop, and how to jazz walk and run. I felt so lost ...view middle of the document...

My heart just drop. My best friend start to scream you made it. I was like no I didn't. I walked a little closer to the list and I saw my name. I ran into my best friend arms. I felt nothing but accomplishment.
Now that I'm a member of the C.E Byrd flag line practices was coming. We started practice in the summer. No practice during the whole season could compare to the after school ones. We had practice after the first day of school. I didn't have lunch that day. Later at practice they gave us our field sheet. I couldn't read nothing. It said 13.2 steps behind the home dash. I just looked amazed. We already practiced the first song but now we had to find our place one the field. It was so hot that day. It felt like we was in the oven cooking. We had to keep starting over and flag line starting place was in the back field. Back field is basically the middle. A drummer start thumping his drum it was tune to start from the beginning. I move my way from the back field to the twenty yard line. I lead the line to the fifth yard line. My vision started to see like I had a filter on my eyes. Everything started to get enhance like a photo app. I started to see stars. I start walk off the field because I knew I was about to faint. I stayed off the field for the rest of practice. My first practice I learn to always eat lunch and stay hydrated. We have Saturday morning practice for our band completions. Marching season starts in October. Early Saturday morning practices were cold. The band director changed the routine where we run around the band one time then take our spots on the field and then start the routine. That was too much. I'll still push forward.
One of the best part about flag line was the football games and not because we get in free. Halftime performance is like our practice for band competitions. At the Ruston game we had to put on our costumes. The band field shoe that year was osmosis. Flag line were the witches and twirler was Dorothy. Our outfits were a grey and black dress, black and white leggings, red sparkle flats, and a green hair piece like back in the 50's. For the makeup we had green eye shadow, red lipstick and blush. I feel like people were laughing at us but I didn't care. The shoes hurt. We had to set our flags. We did our intro were we walked on the field and run around the band because once again we were the witches. We ran to our place in the back field and go to flagging. It felt so good to perform with our costumes on. Another good thing about Friday night football games were being in the stands. Drum line start dropping that beat and you'll get so pump. We had small flags in the stands us. My favorite stand routine was called Ty. It was so energetic. You'll hear the drums and you'll just be so into it. People may not like the band but drum line be on point at the games.
All the hard work leads up to band competitions. Our first band competition was the first week in...
