2nd Annual Fan Favorite Denver Broncos Cheerleader Tournament — Match 3 / Round 1

Hello and welcome back Bronco fans. It's time for our third match of the second annual Fan Favorite Broncos Cheerleader Tournament. For those of you who missed out on the second match up, Amanda defeated Allyson with 62 percent of the vote. But with Allyson getting 148 votes herself, it definitely wasn't an easy decision. And speaking of tough choices, we've got another one to make today...

As always, I encourage voters to take a little bit of time and read the bios before voting (I know how distracting those wonderful pictures can be). It doesn't take long, and it can be extremely fascinating to get to know our squad. Also, more than once, my vote has been swayed by the information provided. And speaking of my vote, just like last year, if there is a tie, I will nullify my own vote declaring the other cheerleader the winner (this actually happened).

But, without further adieu, lets get down to business.

Match 3 of Round 1: Becky vs. Toni G.


This is Becky's third season cheering for us. She kept her profile short and to the point this year, so unfortunately we don't have a lot to go on. Luckily, we can look back at the answers she gave last year to get to know here a bit better. She received a bye in last year's tournament before facing the eventual winner, Patricia. You can see that match, and her answers from last year here.

How do you spend your time off the field?
I love being outdoors, hiking, jogging, and snow-shoeing are a few of my favories. I also enjoy doing Yoga in my spare time.

Most memorable game
I have had such great moments at many games in the Mile High Stadium. I will never forget my first Broncos home game as a Cheerleader and the incredible 2011 home playoff game when we beat the Steelers. But, the game that stands out to me as most memorable was the 2012 Pro Bowl in Hawaii. I was able to represent my teammates and the Denver Broncos and the entire week spent there was an unforgettable experience. .

Toni G.

Toni G. is officially are first true rookie of the tournament. This Project Coordinator from Minneapolis graduated from the University of Minnesota before moving out to Denver to join the Broncos. She seems pretty excited to be a part of the squad, and I think we're all excited to have her on the team as well. Also love seeing another cheerleader who has aspirations to get her PhD. Can't be prouder that our squad is filled with such intelligent, charitable women, not to mention gorgeous.
