Winnebago High School Tuba Player Marching at BCS Championship

WINNEBAGO (WIFR) -- Winnebago High School senior Alex Finley has been playing the tuba since fifth grade. But on Monday he'll be doing something for the very first time and he'll be doing it in front of 80,000 people.

Finley was selected to play the sousaphone in a National High School All Star Marching Band at the National Championship Football Game in Miami.

This despite the fact Winnebago High School has no marching band and Finley's only experience marching was the YouTube video he made in his back yard to earn his selection.
