This week, our feature from the Buffalo Jills is rookie dancer Jill. And before anyone asks, yes, she's already hearing the "Jill the Jill" comments. Found on Christina's line next to Christina and Lisa, Jill is a gymnastics dynamo whose talents have been on display in a large number of routines and performances all season. While the Jills boast other excellent gymnasts in Stefanie and Michelle, the only one in recent memory that was at the same level was Kaitlin M, who cheered from 2005-07. But Jill has a lot more to be proud of than her gymnastic abilities. She's traveled to several countries around the world in her young life and is just returning from a few more. Jill was the lone rookie in the Jills' recent trip to Iraq to visit the troops, a tour that ended with a standing ovation given at the last tour stop. She's hoping in the future to become a math teacher (yep, a math nerd and they didn't look this good when I was in school, either) and continue with the Buffalo Jills. Jill's secondary photo is from the Friday night draft party that the Bills held inside the Fieldhouse for rounds 2 and 3 and features a trio of stunning Jills rookies posing for the camera, namely Jill, Gina, and Meghan.
As luck would have it, Jill's first tryout dance came alongside an eventual linemate in fellow rookie Amanda V. Check out their tryout video right here.
