S-Row originally existed as an alto horn row until it was changed to current instrumentation under the directorship of Jack O. Evans. S-Row is also the only row in band that includes both B flat trumpets and flugelhorns.
Traditions of S-row include an annual C- and S-row spaghetti dinner and scavenger hunt, and an annual Christmas party every year. At every home game S-Row meets at the top of the ramp before the pregame ramp to prepare.
S-Row’s mascot has been a squirrel for some 24 years.
