For South Hagerstown High School senior Craig Hammond, it was something he'd been dreaming of since freshman year - the chance to be on the drum line of a Drum Corps International drum corps. Earning a spot on Jersey Surf Drum and Bugle Corps' drum line this past year made that dream come true. "When I was told I made the line, I was speechless. My goal was to march DCI," said Craig, who lives in the St. James area. Jersey Surf was one of several DCI drum corps for which Craig, 17, considered auditioning.
