“I would like to commend Brad McDavid, Director of Athletic Bands, for his outstanding leadership, and to express deep and heartfelt gratitude to the people of Grant County, especially the first responders, Quincy School District and the administration and staff of George Elementary who went far out of their way to take such incredible care of our students on Thanksgiving night. Many of the most helpful and supportive community members were Cougars fans, who demonstrated the caring values of WSU which transcend rivalry.”” data-reactid=”26″ type=”text”>“I would like to commend Brad McDavid, Director of Athletic Bands, for his outstanding leadership, and to express deep and heartfelt gratitude to the people of Grant County, especially the first responders, Quincy School District and the administration and staff of George Elementary who went far out of their way to take such incredible care of our students on Thanksgiving night.

Even though the band won’t be present in Pullman, the Washington fight song will still be heard. Washington State’s band was seen rehearsing the song hours before Friday night’s game.

And they ended up playing the song before the game.

As the team was stranded after the crash on Thursday, one UW band member gave thanks to the people who came to the elementary school to take care of them.

Husky band bus rolled on the way to Pullman. We’re fine, but shaken up and holed up in an elementary school to regroup. A radio station put out a call and the town of George answered: families left their thanksgiving dinners to bring us leftovers and hot food.pic.twitter.com/Dko6bW7hQa

Thanks to everyone who spread the word and brought food. You put some joy and love back in our hearts. Thanks to the first responders who got there so quick and took care of us. Thanks to the human race on Thanksgiving for giving us some spirit back.

The Apple Cup game determines the winner of the Pac-12 North. Either Washington or Washington State will play Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game and No. 8 Washington State still has a very outside shot of making the College Football Playoff.
