Trojan Marching Band announces new drum major for 2020-21

As the days march on towards the potential start of the 2020 football season, the Trojan Marching Band announced its new drum major on Wednesday evening.

Junior Jake Mequet will take over as the drum major for USC’s Spirit of Troy, one of the iconic positions in college football’s colorful pageantry.

Mequet comes from the band’s trombone section and is double majoring in International Relations and Philosophy at USC.

“I’m so honored to have the opportunity to lead this band next year as drum major,” Mequet said in a video. “Beat the Tide and Fight On.”

Mequet takes over for India Anderson, who was last year’s drum major and the first female to hold the position in the history of the Trojan Marching Band.
