Buffalo Jill of The Week Kelly Ann
Every so often, a cheerleader leaves the squad but chooses to come back after some time away. This season, the Jills have 3 such young ladies and our first look at one is Kelly Ann. She was a dancer with the Jills in 2003 and 2004 and was actually an early departure from the 2004 squad. The last few years, however, found her making the occasional appearance at a few Jills events and probably got her thinking about returning. This year, she's back and obviously looking just as good as if not better than (my vote goes to better than) she did when she was dancing. She's an Ambassador this year though so if you never got a chance to meet her when she was on the squad before, there's a lot more chances to meet her on gamedays at the 97Rock or 103.3 The Edge Tailgate parties on Radio Row.
Back in 2003, the Jills site had a Jill of The Month feature and Kelly Ann was one of those chosen for the honor and the following is what was said: Well it is obvious... Kelly Ann is gorgeous!! Kelly Ann is a Rookie to the Jills this past season. Her soft spoken demeanor should not be mistaken for her personality. Kelly Ann is very sweet, professional and easy to talk to.
“A dedicated, hard worker too, Kelly Ann's work ethic is one to be admired,” says Buffalo Jills Director Stephanie Mateczun."
Kelly Ann returned to the Jills this season because she regretted leaving the squad early when she did. She hates leaving something unfinished and chose to return to the squad to put in another full season. Hopefully, she won't quit at just the one season although she has previously wanted to return to school for her masters degree after having received a bachelor's in political science from the University of Miami, Jim Kelly's alma mater. If she does intend to do that, I'm sure UB would be ecstatic to have her as she'll probably graduate near the top of her class. To read more about Kelly Ann, check the files section of the webgroup (registration required) to see her 2003 rookie bio. Yeah, she was cheering the last time the Bills beat the Patriots. Maybe having her back on the squad will make something happen on December 20th?
