ROUND 1: Broncos' best cheerleader tournament

I got the idea for this a few weeks back while visiting the Phinsider website. They were doing a short bracket of cheerleaders from around the league. I figured that wouldn't work for us though since we all know we have the best cheerleaders there are. So, I've been waisting my free time recenetly on building a bracket for the best of the best. To be fair, all entries were selected with a random number generator. I'd like to wrap this up on Super Bowl Sunday, so with 80 days left, that means a new vote every 3 days or so. It doesn't matter how you vote, but I'll be giving the info and pictures from the Broncos' website in case you want to base this on more than just looks (or to break your the ties when they're both obviously 10s of course). So, without further adieu, I present week one of the tournament.

Being a well-rounded individual!  It is important to be YOURSELF, as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader.  There are so many different responsibilities and experiences within the position that I feel it is important to incorporate all you've learned and all of who you are, into everything you do.

Most memorable experience?
I was extremely blessed to have been asked to go on an AFE (Armed Forces Entertainment) tour last season to Guam.  It was truly eye-opening to see what daily life is like for our troops overseas.  Having the opportunity to be the little piece of "home" to them was more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.  I will treasure each connection I made with our soldiers in Guam.

Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My mom.  She is one of the strongest people I know.  She has done everything for my sisters and I and I hope to one day be the selfless, loving woman she is to my kids.

What top three things do you hope to accomplish in your lifetime?
1) I want to one day have a family and be the best mom and wife I can be!
2) I want to travel!  I don't think I'll make it to every continent, but if I can make it to five, I'll be more than happy!

I think I have been successful in following my heart in achieving my goals.  I have been blessed with so many opportunities and am truly grateful for the impact each one of them has had on me and the relationships I have built through them.  They all have shaped me into the person I am today.  For me, it has been important to set goals for myself and achieve them, but also to be open to the unexpected opportunities life may present.

 

So Week one brings us a battle of teachers. All I can say is they have some very lucky students in their schools.

And, as always, Go Broncos!
