Bassett High Schoolers Going to All-American Bowl

Bassett, VA -- It is one of the biggest announcements in Bassett High School's history. Three students will head to Texas to be part of the U.S. All-American Bowl.

Nikki Parker, Rocky Ankeny and Corbin Martin became members of the All-American Marching Band Wednesday. Only 125 students from across the country get this honor, and they say it is very rare to have three students from one school.

They each went through an audition process. The whole trip is free to students, and it's a once in a lifetime experience.

"I just work really hard and this is the payoff. If you work really hard and you are committed you can go to San Antonio and play with some of the best musicians in the country," said Ankeny.

Students from William Byrd and Brookville were also chosen. The All-American Bowl is in San Antonio in January.
