The varsity football cheerleading squad at Bradley Central High School had its four seniors each take home big awards from this year’s FCA cheer summer camp.

Gracie Hamilton, Elizabeth Anne Wilson, Kamryn Woody and Makenna Baker received several  honors. Ms. Hamilton won the jump off competition over the entire camp. She was voted best technique, height and athleticism from a panel of collegiate cheerleaders.

Ms. Wilson, Ms. Woody and Ms. Baker were chosen to represent the 2019 Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-American Cheerleaders. To earn this award, each cheerleader was required to perform a newly taught dance routine, cheer and best jump. The cheerleaders were judged by the skills training staff at camp where a small percentage are given the official honor of All-American. 

One of the many opportunities to being an FCA All-American is an invitation to participate in the 2019 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl festivities. The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is one of the country’s top-six bowl games, and is a part of the new College Football Playoff. All-Americans are invited to march in the game day parade, perform at the pregame FanFest, attend the game itself and be recognized in the Georgia Dome from the stands. This opportunity also includes a visit onto the field for a pregame visit and photo. 

Additionally, Makenna Baker received the Heart of the Athlete award, this award is given to one cheerleader at the camp across all divisions. The FCA ministry and coaching staff recognized her as exemplifying the four core values of FCA, which are integrity, teamwork, serving and excellence. Ms. Baker was also invited to be part of the FCA cheer staff, which is given by the FCA cheer director to
cheerleaders that demonstrate spiritual materials and leadership at huddle meetings.
