Lee County- The Lee County High School Marching Band will play at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

Saturday band members collected donations to help fund their trip. For every dollar they received, a "Trojan buck" was attached to a mile long fishing line.

"The total trip with about 140 kids going is about 98,000 so it's quite an expense," says band director, Ted Phillips.

"I was going to play football and give up band this year, but the Sugar Bowl came up and it's been one of my dreams to go so I figured I'd do this this year," says trumpet player, Austin Webb.

Lee County is one of only two high schools in the state invited to play at the game.
