What is the best thing about being a Broncos Cheerleader?

Giving back to the community. Most of all dancing for the best team & the most dedicated fans in the NFL, Broncos Country!

What is your most memorable experience?

My most memorable experience was during finals night of the 2009-2010 DBC Auditions. It happened when the judges walked back into the room to announce the team. I will never forget how I felt at that very moment, when I heard Teresa say "Number 41, Lelanna." All my dreams had finally come true! It took me three years of auditions to make the team, but it was all worth it. This opportunity is such a blessing and I'm not taking any moment for granted. I'm so thankful and honored to be a part of such a wonderful and prestigious organization.
