“The football fans and townspeople have long appreciated the Marching Band’s intensity, school spirit, and powerful sound,” Foxborough High School administration said on its website. “The students commit a week in August to rehearse at the annual Marching Band Summer Camp and then work very hard to be prepared for the busy fall season. The group’s mantra “With Pride” is an ongoing source of pride for the entire Foxborough community.”
