This week, we take a look at the Jills' newest dance captain as our Jill of The Week. Christina got named as a co-captain in 2008 and took over her own line midway through the 2009 season when her captain unexpectedly resigned. She obviously impressed her squadmates with her performance as a captain as she got named to go to the Pro Bowl after the season. Performing between Amanda V and Morgan on the line, Christina is 1 of 3 5th-year vets on the squad with Valerie and Stefanie. Now, I'm not saying she plans to stick around for another 5 years or more, but Valerie has told me that she and Christina joke about being the next Omarlla and Eileen, who have each been on the squad for 11 seasons now. In any event, we definitely hope to have her around for quite a while longer as she's a great dancer and, more than that, sets a great example for the less experienced girls on the squad. Christina's secondary photo this week is from Jr Bills Backers Day at Bills training camp at St John Fisher. Shown posing for the camera at the end of their shift are Jill, Sara J, Christina, and Gina. Oh, and lest you think cheerleaders are all about cheering and dancing and not into the game itself, after changing into civvies, Christina spent the rest of the afternoon watching practice with a friend so she had an idea of what to expect of the 2010 Buffalo Bills.
As a captain, Christina obviously didn't have to try out to make the squad. However, before the aspiring Jills could try out, the judges needed a demonstration of what the tryout routine was supposed to look like and Christina and Omarlla provided that demonstration as seen here.
