“I cherish these precious moments that I can spend with my teammates! I love RHS cheer!”| Photo: Mickey Estes

Today I sat down with one of Roswell High Schools Cheer Team members, Natalie Dement. She walked me through what it’s like to being a cheerleader, what made her try out, making new friends on the team, transitioning to Varsity and more.  I started off asking a more simple question: “What made you tryout for cheer?” “I wanted to be a part of something, and get involved with an activity that I enjoy,” Natalie responded. When asked what three words she would use to describe the cheer program, Natalie replied, “Commitment, social and energetic.” “Just like any team, we always hear about how the coaches have touched and impacted the teammates. Can you relate to this?” I asked.  “Yes, of course. The coaches have become trusted adults that we can count on outside of teachers and counselors throughout the years,” she said. I asked, “For any aspiring cheerleaders who want to try out, do you have any advice?” “People should try out if they personally enjoy football, aren’t afraid of crowds, are social and actually have a love for cheerleading,” said Natalie.  I ended the interview with: “How was it transitioning from JV to Varsity?” Natalie replied, “It is more of a commitment, you feel more involved with the actual football team and it’s a bigger squad.”
