Announcing the 2021 Drum Majors
Please welcome our 2021 drum majors, Calvin Householder, Hunter Britton, and Griffin Collins! These three talented leaders were selected from a competitive pool of veterans to serve and lead the 2021 Boston Crusaders. Our drum major team will also be joined by three conductors who will be selected and announced later this spring!
Calvin Householder is entering his fourth season with the Boston Crusaders and second as drum major. Previously, Calvin marched in the baritone section in 2018 and 2019 before taking the podium for the 2020 season. Calvin is a junior music education major at Oklahoma State University where he serves as a drum major for the Cowboy Marching Band. Calvin is also a brother of Kappa Kappa Psi and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. When he’s not studying, Calvin enjoys bike riding and working at the oldest pizza place in Oklahoma, Hideaway Pizza. After aging out this year, Calvin looks forward to a career as a band director and staying involved with drum corps.
