The Silver Twins

This dazzling duo adds a splash of silver to the team. Traditionally twins or look-a-likes in this feature position, they twirl in precise coordination with one another.

In the 1960’s twirling twins Karon and Sharon Roeske attended Purdue. Al G. Wright, who was Director of Bands at the time said, “the chance of finding twins that are twirlers is a million to one, so I named them the ‘Silver Twins’ and put them on the field.”

In 2018, the positions are held by two look-a-likes who twirl in synchronicity: Brooke Wyatt, a sophomore in Exploratory Studies from LaFontaine, Indiana and Alexis Piskulic of Arnold, Missouri, a freshman studying Biochemistry.
