Re: Can superior band programs and football teams coexist...
The last two schools I've taught at (2A & 3A) the football team went several weeks deep in playoffs every year, other sports teams were advancing to state or nearly, and the bands had OPS recordings at the state level, had several years worth of consistent 1st Division ratings, and were consistently Marching Area finalists. It can absolutely be done.
in smaller (4A and under) districts? Does anyone have examples of districts where both programs are successful (meaning consistently into the playoffs, consistent superior ratings/advancement)?
