My name is Amanda and this is my fourth season as an Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader! This is also my second year as one of the captains on the squad. I am so excited to spend another season with the Cardinals!
I was born in Indiana and moved to Arizona with my family when I was six. I first fell in love with cheer and dance in middle school when I was a member of an all-star competitive cheer team. Ever since then I have loved every aspect of dance and performing. When I am not cheering on our Cards, I am busy working away as an administrative assistant at one of Arizona’s local banks. I also enjoy hiking, reading and attempting to cook (I at least try). I love to spend time with my friends and family. I especially love to hang out with my two furry friends, Jax and Dakota.
Within the Cardinals, I am privileged to be a member of our Show Team, which is a group of individuals who perform for the wonderful members of our military. Having a sister who is in the United States Navy, I must say this is an honor to be able to give back to the men and women who risk their lives so that we are safe. I have been able to support our troops both domestically and internationally.
My favorite memory as a Cardinals Cheerleader was touring with Pro-Tour Productions this past February for the Super Bowl tour to Diego Garcia. We spent time learning about the military operations on the island and got to meet some amazing people. Because of the time difference we had to wake up at 5 in the morning to watch the big game. Now that’s dedication to football!!!
I want to say thank you Cardinal Fans for all that you do. You keep the spirit in the stadium at an exciting level all game long. I can’t wait for the rest of the season to get underway!
