The LSU Cheerleading Nationals squad received a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at the 2012 China Cheerleading National Championship near Shanghai on Dec. 16. The China Cheerleading Association asked the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA) for a college level, co-ed cheerleading team to perform at their competition. They requested a team that is excellent in crowd traditions and skill level – and UCA invited us!
“The cheerleaders in college are the best athletes in college,” he said. “They are amazing. You think I’m joking. You think I’m joking. They’re almost all gymnasts. The stuff they do on hardwood, it absolutely blows my mind, thinking, you know, they’re up there without a net. You know?”
