Buffalo Pro Cheer Photos of The Week

This week's Jills Photo of The Week comes from the Uniform Unveiling held last month at the stadium and features 4 of the girls on their way out for their second performance of the event. Shown smiling for the camera are Melissa, Myesha, and Christina with Amanda V getting in the shot behind them. Obviously everyone is familiar with Christina, now in her 6th season on the squad and her 2nd full season as a captain. I still remember her rookie season and how she's grown so much since then but even back then, everyone in Jills management expected big things from her and she's definitely delivered. Amanda V is in her 2nd season on the squad and is known outside the Jills as well as to us after having spent time traveling the country as a dance and cheer instructor. Melissa is a rookie with the Jills but if she's actually unknown to anyone reading this blog, then you must be new. I've actually known Melissa longer than even Christina as she spent 6 1/2 seasons with the Bandettes including the last several as a co-captain and a captain. Myesha is another of the rookies on the dance squad and other than the obvious, how stunning she is, I really don't know anything else to say about her so far but I'm sure that will change over the next few months.

Our Bandettes Photo of The Week comes from the April game against Rochester. Shown smiling for the camera at the pregame autograph session are close friends Noelle and Lauren S. Both of these ladies are in the nursing field with rookie Noelle working as a registered nurse. Lauren, a certified nurse's assistant, finished up her 3rd season as a Bandette as an acting captain through the final 2 games of the season and through the playoffs.

Our featured BvB player is 2nd year Blonde team member Amanda F, a co-captain for her team this year. She's shown posing after last year's game with some of the girls she's been coaching in cheering who came out to support her. Amanda is one of the most active Jills and Bandettes alumni the last few years. After spending the 2001-03 seasons as a Jill, she spent 2006-07 as a Bandette. Then, after joining up with BvB last year with some former squadmates, she was one of the alumni who joined the Jills and Bandettes in Toronto for the big halftime performance with the rock group Hinder. She wasn't finished however as she joined several other Bandettes alumni and the 2011 Bandettes dancing at the Bandits-Blazers game April 16. She's also planning on joining about 50 other Jills alumni for a special pregame performance with the Buffalo Jills on October 9th.
