Anderson High Cub tackles music

He's a musician by day, but his bandmates know what he does in the dark. 

Anderson High junior Chiewo Wilson started playing football and music at a young age. 

“It's like exercise," said Wilson. "That’s like my favorite part about it, I like being able to run, but also I like being able to hit people.

Wilson played the french horn at Anderson middle school before debuting this year at Anderson High. 

"I saw the high school band perform at my elementary school and it was like the coolest thing I’ve ever seen," said Wilson. "It’s just inspirational, just power behind music. "It’s something that you don’t see in other things." 

Wilson has a great work ethic and has found a balance between that work load. He attends band practice in the morning, football practice after school and sometimes band practices at night. 

He even performed in his last home game's halftime show in his football uniform. 

"It was kind of fun," said Wilson. "But it was also kind of hard because I twisted my ankle right before that. "But, it was pretty cool." 


“Its pretty amazing how diverse he is," said band instructor Michael Costa. "His passion comes out when he’s playing and even though he’s a very reserved person, he does the things he loves like football or music, you can really see that passion come out." 

Chiewo and the Cubs have their final conference game this Friday at Yreka.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week. Wet weather returns next weekend.
