Catch 'Hype Man of the Valley' on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'
You can see Fresno State marching band cymbals sensation Travis Morris get his wish on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” at 4 p.m. today on CBS47.
Morris, a graduate of Clovis North High School, posted a tweet in November telling the show’s star that he could teach her “how to crash the cymbals.” He also asked to appear on her show.

Landing the booking likely was helped by the fact that Morris has become an internet sensation. A video of Morris playing “Hey Pachuco” has more than 314,000 views on Twitter.
Helping Morris gain nationwide exposure: The popular sports website Bleacher Report posted the video with the caption “His energy is unmatched”

‘The Hype Man of the Valley’
Morris bills himself as “the hype man of the Valley” on social media — a title he says was bestowed on him by friends and Fresno State football fans.
“I live for performing and doing it for the Fresno State Bulldog Marching Band just makes me happy,” Morris told ABC30 in November. “I’m blessed to represent Fresno.”
