Behrend’s Super Bowl Connection

If you’re ready for the opening of the NFL season, you might be surprised to find out that Behrend has a direct connection to the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Brian Forsman, a member of the concert, pep, and jazz bands from 1999-2003, is a member of the Seahawks famous Blue Thunder drum line. He was selected by audition to play bass drum with the group after moving to Seattle and has been performing with the group for several years.
