FSU band planning tributes for Saints, Jameis Winston in Superdome game vs. LSU

·1 min read

This is really cool. The Florida State Marching Chiefs are making the trip to New Orleans for the LSU Tigers’ 2022 season opener at the Caesars Superdome, and the school band plans to support Seminoles players both past and present. They shared plans from their official Twitter account illustrating formations that shout out Jameis Winston, FSU’s 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, and the New Orleans Saints — his current pro team and the hosts of their game with LSU.

It’s a really cool gesture. The band plans to spell out “Jameis” in block letters and to form New Orleans’ iconic fleur-de-lis logo while playing a sampling of “When the Saints Go Marching In,” along with some other features from their usual playlist. It’ll certainly add to the electric atmosphere when the Tigers hit the field under new head coach Brian Kelly for the first time on Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT on ABC. Winston is busy preparing for the Saints’ own regular season opener (on the road against the Atlanta Falcons next week), but he’s sure to appreciate the gesture.
