Legacy High JROTC group pictureLegacy High School’s Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) will be competing on the national level at one of the largest army-only talent contests.

The Iron Broncos Armed Drill Team earned 5th Brigade Grand Champion, the highest honor given, during the annual 5th Brigade JROTC Drill Championships held in San Antonio. The team beat 21 schools from a five-state region to earn the title.

The win advanced the cadets to the Army National Drill Championship, which will be held in Louisville, Kentucky on April 1. The Iron Broncos won ninth and fifth place at the national event in 2016 and 2015, respectively. The team hopes to win the Army Nationals this year and compete in the all-service nationals, or Grand Nationals, at Daytona Beach, Florida on May 5.

The members of the Iron Broncos are Dakota Coley, Cameron Mosley, Zachary Horn, Carter Bonneau, Solomon Davis, Michael Butler, Carson Keeley, Keyante Gilliam, Donald Garrett, Austin Bernal, Caleb Finger, Devon Coleman, William Gentry and Daniel Trevino. Sgt. Maj. Eric Smith and Sgt. 1st Class James Watkins are the instructors.

JROTC is a program offered to high schools that teaches students character, student achievement, wellness, leadership and diversity.
