The Sun Devil Marching Band is a program of great tradition, and with that tradition comes countless alumni who have been a part of the band’s major milestones throughout the years. Individuals who have participated in the Sun Devil Marching Band can lay claim to experiences such as marching in the Rose Bowl parade, attending countless bowl games, performing at the Super Bowl, and receiving the Sudler Trophy.

Among other things, alumni of the Sun Devil Marching Band can be recognized for their pride and their dedication. In addition to supporting the football team, the band entertains the home crowd by performing four to five different shows every season. This translates to nearly 100 shows performed over the span of 20 years, and the participation of up to 400 band members each year. As a result, alumni of the Pride of the Southwest are credited with the ability to learn quickly and work hard, and are known to epitomize what Sun Devil Pride truly means.
