    Here We Go Titans, Here We Go! *clap Clap*

    Jeez. Those were the days, huh? I was a cheerleader from about 7th grade until I graduated high school. It was great up until I actually got in high school; there I was stuck in a room with the preppiest girls in the entire school who tried to make me "one of them" on...

    Best Two Years Ever.

    I was a male cheerleader, only one, on a small varsity show cheer squad for my high school, there was 24 of us, the memories are still with me, I will never forget them. I remember Anaheim, going to nationals, having fun, it was a blast. We went both years, 2010 and 2011. The...

    You always hear people arguing about

    whether cheerleaders are athletes and let me tell you, after three years, two sprained ankles, one sprained neck, three sprained wrists and a broken rib, cheerleaders are pretty hardcore athletes. They get thrown around every practice and do you know how hard it is to do a...

    All through school including college I was a

    cheerleader. I loved my different dancing routines on the football field and basketball courts. I dated and had fun with a lot of school players.

    Not Really But.....

    I lost a bet to a cheerleader named Cathy at my school I said girls can't beat guys in sports and cheerleading isn't a sport. If I beat her in basketball she had to be my maid all year, but she beat me, so now she gets to make me into a cheerleader any way she wants. We...

    It's a Life I Wish to Forget....

    I was a cheerleader my sophomore year of high school. What possessed me to try out? I really don't know. My best friend was a cheerleader and she someone convinced me to try out for the Junior Varsity Squad. And I made it. Yep. I did. At first, I loved it. The thought that the...

    The Hags And Cads That Betrayed Me

    I have recently discovered that I have this sick habit to ONLY SEE THE GOOD in people, ending up cheering for and praising the wrong people. You see I have a caring heart, I always want to give too much to everybody, but I realized that some people just don't deserve nor need...

    GO Team !!!!!

    I was a cheerleader. Everybody said I would make a good cheerleader and I can get into flexible positions, do the splits (and still can) and I was a cheerleader until the 10th grade. ALWAYS got special attention and was popular. And unusually enough I actually do like sports, not...
