Connections, history will help lead this year’s drum majors success for the CMB

There is only so much one can do to prepare to be a drum major in the Cornhusker Marching Band on game day. The situation and atmosphere in Memorial Stadium, at a road game or at a bowl game is constantly in a state of flux but this fall’s drum majors do have some family connections and history to lean on when there are quick changes to be made.

 

For one, Meghan Coughlin, who was a CMB drum major last season, and Jacob Coughlin are brother and sister. They are believed to be the first brother-sister drum majors serving at the same time in CMB history.
