Buffalo Jill of The Week Omarlla

The average career of a Buffalo Jills cheerleader is about 2-3 seasons. This week, we're looking at one of the girls who's been raising that average for several years. Omarlla has been with the squad since the year 2000, an incredible 11 seasons which included a Pro Bowl appearance in 2004, but has yet to show any signs of slowing down and is leaning towards returning for a 12th season as well. Her contributions to the squad go far beyond what the fans see on gamedays and those contributions are a major reason why no one is anxious to see her retire anytime soon. You see, when you have a large group of girls together, cliques tend to form and there can tend to be some cattiness. The Jills are the exception that prove the rule and if there was one girl more responsible for that than anyone else, my vote would go to Omarlla. She truly acts as a big sister to her squadmates and gets along as well with rookies on the squad as she does with longer-term vets. Away from the squad, she's an elementary school teacher whose students seem excited to have her as a teacher and with a master's degree under her belt already, plans on attaining her PhD one day as well. Omarlla's secondary photo comes from the October game against the Jaguars. Prior to the game, Omarlla got a line shot taken in the tunnel area. Shown posing are Loren, Brianne, Kelly, Lindsey, Omarlla, Kristen, Jackie, and Angelina.

Obviously, as a captain, Omarlla didn't need to tryout to make the 2010 squad but at 1st cuts, Omarlla and Christina performed the tryout routine at the start of the day so that fans and judges knew what they were to expect to see.
