War Eagle y’all! My name is Trey Bosley, and I am so excited to be serving as one of the Trombone Section Leaders for the 2022 season! I am from Niceville, Florida, having graduated from Niceville High School in 2018. This fall I will be entering my senior year in Building Science as well as my third season with the AUMB. Outside of Marching Band, I am very involved with the Building Science program here, including an incredible service-learning project for the Curtis House in Opelika. 

Little did I know when I first stepped on campus my freshman year that the best memories I would make as an Auburn student would be with the marching band and the trombone section. This program has led me to some of the greatest experiences and greatest friends I have ever had, and I have no doubt it can do the same for any member of the AUMB family. My absolute favorite experience from my time in the band is hearing the famous “doink” of Alabama’s missed field goal in the 2019 Iron Bowl, then playing for the end of the game as the student section rushed the field in front of us. From New Year’s on the beaches of Tampa to a miracle finish in AT&T Stadium, trips to other SEC schools, and running out of the tunnel for a night SEC game in Jordan-Hare, there are too many experiences to list that are worth getting excited for in the AUMB.

I can’t wait to see what this upcoming season has in store for us and getting to meet all of our new members in August. If you have any questions about the marching band as a whole, the trombone section, or general questions about life as an Auburn student, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time!
