Rivalry Update: We Found Halftime Footage of the Raider Band
Just last week I published an article about VICTORIA'S ORIGINAL RIVALRY and your response was big time! What an awesome trip down memory lane, but I was lacking band pictures and memories for both teams. I asked for your help and you delivered. I received many emails, messages, and I even found video footage of a Stroman Raider Halftime show back in 1994. Check out the video and more pictures below.
I am still searching for memories. If you have any photos, clippings, or video footage of the Raiders, Stingarees, or the Flyers, please continue to submit to JP@townsquaremedia.com as I continue to work on bringing back those awesome memories!
The following video is the Stroman Raider Halftime Performance from October 28, 1994. Courtesy of Greg Garcia and the Stroman Raider Band Reunion Facebook page. We also have some pictures from 1996 and 1999.
The following three photo submissions received from Thea Mueller Shumbera. Thea wrote...
" I loved the expose you did. East and West have never experienced a rivalry as strong as Stroman and VHS had. It was an amazing time in high school history here in Victoria, Texas. I'm so glad to have been a part of it all."
Here a picture of the Stroman band from their Washington D.C trip back in 1996
