Jeff Sacktig up for DCI Hall of Fame Nomination

The Cadets cheering on Jeff Sacktig in this year's nomination process

JeffSacktig_by-PauloT[1].jpgThe Cadets are excited to announce that visual designer and drill writer Jeff Sacktig is currently up for nomination to the DCI Hall of Fame.

An alumnus of The Cadets and current visual designer, Jeff's contributions to The Cadets and drum corps as a whole are truly legendary.

Jeff played soprano in The Cadets from 1986 to 1989 and was featured as a soloist many times. He served as horn sergeant and was named "Cadet of the Year." Fellow Cadets remember Jeff as a strong leader on the field.

Sacktig began working on The Cadets' visual staff in the early 1990s and became the drill writer in 1995. With the exception of 2002, he has held the position ever since and is now the visual caption supervisor.

Following an innovative visual design track laid by The Cadets designers George Zingali ('82–'85 and '87–'88), Tony Hall ('86), and Marc Sylvester ('89–'94), Sacktig credits the most influence to Zingali and Sylvester.

He prefers a fast, risky style of drill writing with many exposed block rotations and pass-throughs.

Sacktig has been a member, instructor and designer for some of the greatest corps in DCI history. While mostly known for his drill writing for The Cadets through several world championships, he has also worked with Capital Regiment, Magic of Orlando, and others. He continues to contribute to The Cadets' success and is now also contributing his expertise and leadership to Cadets 2.
