"My squads at BC have very much discipline & admiration for the sport of cheerleading and dance which is the top reason they are being formed into athletes with the desire to never give up. Any collegiate athlete should be honored taking the initiative to better his/her self & their skills. I have very much respect for my athletes and that is why I am able to receive their undivided attention and trust. Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect, and a perfect practice comes with blood, sweat, & tears… so get ready.”
