Buffalo Jill of The Week Joya
This week, we take a look at rookie dancer Joya as our Jill of The Week. Spending her gamedays on Eileen's line between Jill and Anna, she's loving the chance to perform in front of 73,000 fans. She took a gradual build-up in excitement levels, starting off with the Hall of Fame game and going through preseason and ending up with the Home Opening win over Tampa Bay. While the team hasn't been providing the fans with any excitement to speak of since then, Joya and her squadmates are determined to give people attending Bills games a reason to stay in their seats watching or on their feet applauding from pregame to the end of the game. This college graduate is also a big fan of the camera, being one of this season's most-photographed Jills. Of course a part of that is due to having Eileen as a captain, who seems to do a lot to get a plenty of photos for her line. And then there's also Joya's dedication to the community, with several appearances to her credit, including a few in the Southern Tier. The dedication to the community is no surprise as she seems to enjoy meeting new people and is known for being friendly by her squadmates. When it comes to tryouts, everyone knows that the girls learn a routine one week and perform it a week later for the 1st round of dance cuts. There are also a few rounds in which they need to learn a short routine on the spot and Joya is known as a fast learner, something that definitely helped her land one of the spots on the squad this season.
