The Army All-American Selection Tour stopped at Coosa High on Wednesday to welcome Keiley Rowland to the team for the 2017 U.S. Army All-American game. Rowland, a senior at Coosa High, will march with the elite group of marching band members who will perform during halftime of the game in January at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Rowland is a member of the Coosa High color guard and will be a part of the color guard for the Army band.
The Selection Tour stops in each All-American city totaling more than 190 stops for band and football participants. Rowlands family, classmates, teachers and friends were there to support her during the announcement formally making her part of the Army team. “I am so proud of Keiley and all she has accomplished and I am very excited for her to represent Coosa High and Floyd County Schools at the national level,” stated Adam Daniel, band director at Coosa High School. Rowland will travel to San Antonio on January 2 and will spend the week learning the halftime routine for the game on Saturday.
