Ashley S.

It was probably a huge accomplishment to become a NFL cheerleader, so now that you’ve reached this, what’s your next goal or dream?

"My next dream would be to work as a senior chemist at a top cosmetic company like Loreal, Covergirl, Mac, or etc.  I was a chemistry major in undergrad, and that would definitely be my dream job!"

What’s the nightlife for you? Stay in and relax, or it’s the weekend, bring back college?

"My nightlife includes a little of both, but for the most part I love to go out and dance. Although, there are some nights I just want to relax and prepare for the next day which is always busy."

When you’re not dancing, where can people find you?

"When I'm not dancing, people can find me at the track running or at work 5 days a week. I work at a private toxicology forensic science lab as a Forensic Chemist."

Danielle

It was probably a huge accomplishment to become a NFL cheerleader, so now that you’ve reached this, what’s your next goal or dream?

"It has always been a dream of mine to become an NFL Cheerleader, so it's surreal to me that I am one now! It's been such an incredible opportunity in so many ways! Now that I have reached this, my next goal is to get my Master’s Degree in nutrition and start my practice as a registered dietician, and to travel all over the world."

Jock or Nerd. Which one would you really rather settle down with?

"A little of both would be perfect! If I had to choose, however, I would pick a nerd! I’m definitely an athletic person, but I love to laugh and I never take life too seriously. As long as you're an outdoors person with intelligence and a sense of humor, we’ll be all right!"

What’s the craziest thing a dude’s ever done to hit on you? In or out of stadium?

"When I was sitting in class taking notes.  After the class was over, the guy in front of me ripped a sheet of paper out of his notebook, wrote on it and slid it in front of me as I was getting ready to leave. I was a little confused because I hadn’t “passed a note in class” since junior high school. I opened it up and read the note as he sat there staring at me while I read it. The note read, “Will you go out with me.” The semester had just started, so I hadn’t gotten a chance to know anyone in the classroom yet. I felt awkward because he was just staring at me and I had never really met him before."

Heather

What’s the best and worst thing about being a NFL cheerleader?

"Being a NFL cheerleader is such a challenging, yet rewarding experience, and I’m honored to be in the position that has allowed me to enjoy this time in my life. There are so many wonderful aspects, but the game day experience we have and the appearances we attend are hard to beat. I still remember walking out of the tunnel for the first time, having my family present supporting me, and the chills that came when I did! On the other hand, I have to say the hardest thing about being a NFL cheerleader is the stereotypes that come along with the title. I’m proud to cheer with such beautiful, intelligent women.  All of my teammates, in addition to cheering for the NFL, are either in their professional career, or they are attending college."

When you’re not dancing, where can people find you?

"When I’m not dancing, I enjoy traveling, horseback riding, learning something new, and spending time with my family and friends. I especially enjoy spending time in my hometown where I grew up. This time of the year, with the holidays coming up and football season, it reminds me how proud I am of my roots!"

What’s the worst cheerleading injury you’ve ever had?

"As a rookie flyer, on our varsity squad in high school, I came out of a stunt and hit my stunting partner right in the face with my elbow.  My stunting partner had to leave practice early and go to the emergency room to get stitches; I felt awful!!  Luckily, I’ve been fortunate not to experience anything other than the typical sprain throughout my cheering career."

Jordan

Who’s the hottest on-screen cheerleader?

"Ali Larter, Varsity Blues. That southern accent must drive you boys wild right?"

What’s the best and worst thing about being a NFL cheerleader?

"The best thing would have to be the atmosphere of our team unity and involvement around the city. I get the opportunity to help in the community in ways that humble me every day. And the worst? The long hours and how much I am away from my family. Although I absolutely adore it, people do not realize how much time is invested and the dedication is put forth."

What’s the nightlife for you? Stay in and relax, or it’s the weekend, bring back college?

"I never got to go out much in college, with all the hours I had to put in dancing. Although there are lots of opportunities to go out nowadays, I'm much more comfortable on a Friday night at home snuggled up on the couch."

Stefanie

Jock or Nerd. Which one would you really rather settle down with?

"Nerd for sure! I have cheered and danced my whole life, but I also love being a student and going to school, so I tend to gravitate more towards the nerdy guys."

What’s the craziest thing a dude’s ever done to hit on you? In or out of stadium?

"It was my second season cheering for the Titans.  A male fan photo-shopped a shot of me in my swimsuit into a picture with him in his swim suit on the beach in Hawaii. It was sent to my parents’ house with a letter requesting a date. Needless to say, I never responded to his crazy letter or his fantasy picture of us on the beach."

What’s the best and worst thing about being a NFL cheerleader?

"The best thing about being an NFL cheerleader is cheering on the field in front of thousands of screaming fans. The worst part of being an NFL cheerleader would be the reputation some people have of us as being uneducated and high-maintenance!  News flash: most of us are college graduates who have very respectable careers, and the others of us are working toward it!"
