Mr. Frye told me 6abc: & # 39; He was sitting in the stands and knocking on the stands with some drumsticks, and I was like who this little baby is who keeps beating drumsticks in the stands.

& # 39; So we told him to come and we held the drum out, someone was holding it and he just started to go, against the other band across the field and I was like wow. & # 39;
