From Dansville Mustang to Buffalo Jill
A cheerleader since the age of 6, one Dansville native has made it to the big leagues – literally.
Jessica, a 2007 Dansville High School graduate, is now a member of the Buffalo Jills Ambassador cheerleading squad.
As an ambassador, Jessica has made an estimated 20 to 25 personal appearances since she joined the team in March, plus has so far participated in two Bills’ preseason games – one in Toronto and the second in Buffalo.
It was “amazing,” she said of her first opportunity to be a Jill during a game, commenting that it is remarkably more exciting than being at a game as a spectator.
An ambassador is a non-performing member of the cheerleading squad. As an ambassador, Jessica makes personal appearances at corporate and charity functions, plus meets fans during games.
