The LSU Tiger Band Color Guard has its first male performer since about 1987 and likely its first male flag performer.

The Advocate reports that Morgan City native Daniel Mincey performed with the color guard at Saturday’s half-time show, apparently a change from the typical all-female group.

The paper says that Mincey and Dennis Llinas, LSU associate director of bands, confirmed Monday that Mincey is a member of the Color Guard.

Mincey graduated from Morgan City High school in 2018, where he was a member of the Mighty Tiger Band and cheerleader.
