ROUND 6: Broncos' best cheerleader tournament

First of all, thanks to all who voted and congratulations to Megan for winning Round Five of our cheerleader tournament. Also, another big Mile High Salute to Tara for her showing. Despite many people, including myself, having a very difficult time deciding between these two knockouts, Megan still managed to come away with three fourths of the votes.

For those of you who are new to this series, here's the usual introduction: I got the idea for this 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 built 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 that means a new vote every 3 or 4 days. It doesn't matter how you vote, but I'll be giving the information and pictures from the Broncos' website. You can base your vote on who you perceive to be the biggest fan, whose personality you like the best or plain and simple looks (of course, the info will still probably have to play a part since they're all obviously 10s of course).

So, without further adieu, I present Round Six of the tournament (and the right side of the bracket).

Round Six: Jessica Flores versus Lindy Koucky

Jessica Flores

Jessica has been a fan of the Broncos since 2001 -- when she first moved to Colorado.

She doesn't list a university on her profile, but she currently works as a High School Poms Coach.

Occupation & How does Broncos affect your work?
This year I will be a student studying to be a secondary level English teacher! I think I will have to work on time management between being a student and a Broncos Cheerleader! A lot of focus and dedication will get me through the year! Being on the Broncos affects my coaching in a very positive way. It has helped me teach my girls how to be strong committed dancers. I use the coaching and advice that I have received from my teammates and coaches on my girls and in return they've become an awesome team!

We're very dedicated women. If it weren't for hard work and dedication we wouldn't be where we are today, nor would we be able to help so much in our community.
