PHILIPPI (AP) — Alderson-Broaddus will debut its marching band and develop a fight song to coincide with the start of football as a full-fledged sport this fall.

A-B director of athletic bands Logan Lindsey says he's actively recruiting students to play in a "fun, creative and high-energy atmosphere."

Lindsey is currently writing the music for the fight song. Later this semester the Philippi school will host a contest to give students the chance to write the lyrics, then vote on their favorite choice.

The football team will play its first home game as a member of Division II on Sept. 7. The team competed as a club sport in 2012.
