My day started off with a sunrise workout alongside my Pro Bowl roommate Nicole from the Dallas Cowboys. As cheerleaders, we have to cross train and condition our muscles so that we can practice our routines with high intensity, or what we like to call "game-day speed."
Once we grabbed a quick coffee and breakfast we were able to meet many more Pro Bowl representatives as they arrived to the hotel. Natalie from the Indianapolis Colts and Krystal from the Kansas City Chiefs were the first ladies we met. I can't forget to mention meeting Sam from the Jacksonville Jaguars! We share the same name and have deemed ourselves the "Sam Squad."
Every time I meet a new representative from a different team I am so inspired by their poise, elegance, kindness, fun personalities and professional resumes. This truly is a talented group!
One of the biggest highlights of my day was the Play 60 event at Luke Elementary. I partnered with Katelyn from the San Diego Chargers and Amanda from the Arizona Cardinals to lead a cheerleading clinic for about 50 young girls. As the kids came out to meet us they greeted us with plenty of high fives and hugs! It was awesome!
Following a quick group warm up and stretch, we taught the girls choreography from an actual routine that will be performed at the Pro Bowl. They were ecstatic to practice the dance steps and were such great listeners. Thank you to Luke Elementary for making my day so special!
The day finished with a marvelous welcome dinner at the prestigious Arizona Biltmore Resort. The appetizers and entrées were incredibly delicious and I had the best company ever, seated side-by-side with all of my new Pro Bowl cheerleading teammates.
Next up on the agenda will be shooting the team photograph; all 25 Pro Bowl representatives will be featured on a single poster. Check back tomorrow for updates on that and our very first team practice!
