SJHHS cheer team is starting a new school tradition for football games.

“The new tradition is a chant and rally that involves the cheerleaders’ and crowd’s participation,” said varsity cheer coach Kelley Glidden.

Every summer the cheer team attends the US Spiritleaders cheer camp in Costa Mesa. The team stays over night for four days and learns new cheers, stunts, and dances. This camp allows the team to bond and learn new material to perform for the next year. At the 2017 camp, the cheer team learned the new chant called “fired up.”

This chant is an interactive cheer between the cheer team and the crowd. When the team says “how do you feel?” the crowd says “fired up!” After learning this new routine, the team was very excited to perform for the crowd at the school football games, because they “wanted something so that both the crowd and cheerleaders can involved,” said senior varsity cheerleader Brooke Snow.

Once all the people got the lyrics right, it seemed to be a hit!”

Snow said, “this cheer actually means a lot to me, because this is our last year cheering and we decided to end it with a fun tradition.” The senior cheerleaders are enthusiastic about the new tradition to end their high school experience on the team.

The cheer team works really hard throughout the year to make football games more fun for the students and to create a stronger sense of stallion pride. “I believe having a cheer squad lead the unity of school is very important,” said Glidden.

With this cheer, the cheerleaders are able to hype up the crowd to supporting the football team. The team rallies the crowd to join along in cheering for the team and all the students can use this cheer to get “fired up.” “Once all the people got the lyrics right, it seemed to be a hit!” said student Brianna Rodriguez.

“As cheer captains, Tatum and I are trying to work on crowd involvement, but we have a lot of fun with the cheer regardless,” said Snow. Having the student section involved with the cheer team creates a strong student union and allows the students to feel like they are apart of something.

Glidden said, “It’s so much fun to watch. The crowd was receptive and gets ‘fired up!’” Something Coach Kelley would like to say to the students is to “be loud and proud when we are at games! Let’s get FIRED UP!”
