When Darnell Hamilton took the field with Roane County High School’s marching band last Friday, he knew just what to do.
From his wheelchair, he easily kept time with the band’s drum corps, even showing a bit of flair at the end of the pre-game performance.
“He loves the band,” said his mother, Shirley. “That is all he does is love music,”
She said her special-needs son, who graduated from Roane County High in 2004, suffers from Crohn’s disease, and complications have wrecked his liver.
