Dave was a percussion instructor for the Bushwacker bass lines of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. He continued the tradition of great Bush bass lines that came before and won percussion titles. Dave’s commitment to the Bushwackers and the percussion section were exemplary. As years went on, and Dave was not part of the instructional staff, he would be asked to come in before championship weekend and his short tenure created marked improvement in the bass line. His leadership and direction made an impact on many Bushwacker members.
