Joe Gorrell, a senior at Cocke County High School, has an uncommon distinction that he and his fellow band members are very proud to state, according to CCHS Band Director Pat Mason.

Gorrell is the best high school trombone player in East Tennessee. Not to toot his own horn, Gorrell won the distinction fair and square in competition against the finest players East Tennessee had to muster.

In fact, this is the second time in as many years that Gorrell has out performed all comers in auditions that test every aspect of a studentís musical background and training.
