Dave Smittle: He's the voice of the Bulldog marching band on Friday nights

By Darlene Bowers
“Stand up, Ada fans, and join us in cheering on our Bulldogs as the Ada High School Marching Band plays the fight song for our team!”

Do these words stir you to jump up out of your seat and applaud as the team takes the field, the cheerleaders leap into synchronized action, the color guard waves their bulldog flags, and the band fills the stadium with that familiar, heart pounding beat that proclaims another football Friday night in Ada, Ohio?

The following story is from ONU's Facebook:

For 125 years, the Ohio Northern University Marching Band contributed to the Northern campus and the Ada community.

When students J.B. McArthur and S.H. Myers led the first marching band in 1890, it is doubtful that either considered the legacy they were leaving.
