A look back at Ashley's 2014 season as a TopCat

Sadly, the 2014 NFL season came and went with no Jills on the sideline thanks to the decision to shut the squad down by former Jills director Stephanie Mateczun. However, the Jills did have a pair of alumnae cheering on other teams this past season and doing a great job of it as well. The first of these two young ladies is 2008-09 Jills alum Ashley W. She joined the Jills along with a great rookie class in 2008 and returned in 2009 only to have to leave the squad late in the summer. With her fiery red hair and warm personality, she was joy not only to photograph, but to get to know while she was on the Jills. A few years ago, she and her boyfriend moved to North Carolina and it wasn't long before the urge to get back on the sidelines got her to try out for the Carolina Panthers TopCats cheerleading squad. 2014 was her 3rd year on the TopCats and she spent it as a captain, imparting her wisdom on the younger girls on the squad.
