Worth County Guard recognized for state title

November 30, 3004

Sylvester- The sound of a command, a quick motion with rifles and the Worth County Colorguard is moving in perfect unison.

"You just got to focus on your routine and what you're going to do when you get on the field," said Steven Grimsley, a cadet major and a junior at Worth County High School.

Because it takes that focus to win state titles, especially seven times in a row. But it also takes committment.

"And without them being committed to what they have to do, they wouldn't stick to it and these kids stick to it," said Command Sgt. Major Russell Beard, JROTC Instructor.

There may only be four, but it's a team mentality.

"Cause everybody's got to contribute," said Nikita Hooks, a command captain and a junior.

"Cause you got to help each other," Grimsley said. "You got to stay on time. The rifles have to stay on time. The flags have to stay on time."

That means knowing each other's intricate moves.

"The little wink, the little sniff, whatever, to perfect their routine and they stay here all day to do it," Beard said.

Long days every day to be the team that steps to the top most every time.

"It's fun to win, but then when you don't win, it lets you know what you do wrong," Grimsley said.

 "Just like anything else in this life, if you can't work with the four people or the five people that you work with, you can't accomplish anything," Beard said. "These kids work together."

Working together every step of the way until their final command.
