Devin Carey is the new band teacher for grades 6-12 in USD 257. REGISTER/VICKIE MOSS

Devin Carey said his parents insisted he and his brothers try new things to figure out where their talents lie.

“They made us try everything,” said Carey, who grew up in Beatrice, Neb..

So he tried sports — from football to track to tennis and wrestling — and developed “an appreciation for sports but I wasn’t very good.” He broke his collarbone watching a wrestling match. Two wrestlers tumbled into the crowd where he was sitting. That ended his wrestling days.
