COLUMBIA — In a sea of white sparkling coats, three lone black-coated leaders stand out. These three people conduct, guide and provide a face for Marching Mizzou, the marching band for the MU football team. Juniors Nate Edwards and Joe Schreimann and senior Zach Kohl were selected Monday out of the fourteen who auditioned for the 2008 Marching Mizzou drum majors.
