I have been a cheerleader for 11 years of my life. I started when I was 6 years old. It was always my dream to cheer for my high school football team on Friday nights. Eventually, my dream did come true but it wasn't the Fairy Tale I always thought it would be. Ronde' and Tiki Barber have graduated from my high school so football is the most important sport. J.J. Reddick also graduated from my high school so basketball is right up there. The girls volley ball team won consecutive back-to-back state championships for years. So needless to say, cheerleading was NEVER considered a "real" sport. Nonetheless, I cheered my heart out for every team, season after season no matter if our teams won or lost, for the entire four years I was in high school.
