Buffalo Jill of The Week Lisa

This week, we take a look at 5th year vet Lisa as our Buffalo Jill of The Week. This season, Lisa is Omarlla's co-captain and can be found on gamedays dancing next to rookies Briana and Myesha. Lisa is one of those girls who can be found at the center of everything without trying to be. That trait has less to do with her beauty than it does with her personality. Besides the fact that she loves to enjoy herself, she also loves to ensure those around her are enjoying themselves as well. Lisa is proof that persistence pays off. Quite often, when a prospective Jill misses the cut at tryouts, she'll give up and not try again. We can be thankful Lisa is not that and so can she. She won the dance rookie of the year award in 2007 and has been the dance veteran on the year the past 2 seasons. She's been cheering non-stop since the age of 4 and we can only hope she continues for several more years. It's not just those of us who see her at the Ralph that appreciate her contributions, either. A few years ago, she was part of a group of  7 Buffalo Jills who gave up their Thanksgiving holidays to visit the US Military stationed in the Balkan region. You can read more about Lisa at Lisa's secondary photo was taken at the Open Practice the Jills held for family and friends of the alumni that were performing in the October 9th pregame performance. Shown posing for the camera are Lisa and Murissa.

As a co-captain this year, she didn't have to try out so instead, we'll take a look back at last year's tryout video from 1st cuts. Valerie and Lisa performed together their last few years trying out with matching outfits and drawing matching applause as seen here.
