Downingtown Area School District Superintendent of Schools Larry Mussoline tweeted his congratulations to the band, saying "Downingtown West Band wins 1st place in Taxslayer Bowl HS division: best drum major, best percussion, best overall!"

Parent Kevin Hughes tells Action News Downingtown West competed against bands from around the nation and then performed during halftime of the Taxslayer Bowl on Saturday.

Muussoline also tweeted video of the band getting hyped prior to playing at halftime of the game that saw Georgia defeat Penn State 24-17.

Hughes says it wasn't all business for the high school musicians, as they were able to have some off-the-field fun at Universal Studios, too.
