The annual Pro Bowl game is the annual all-star game that celebrates the brightest football stars of today and tomorrow. But those aren't the only athletes representing their team in Orlando this year. Twenty five young women will also take their place on the field at Camping World Stadium.
Orlando is home of the Magic Kingdom, the land of dreams and fairy tales. Many often compare the idea of becoming a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader to a fairytale. As a young girl, Jennifer attended Camp DCC and was chosen from several hundred little girls to be a Junior Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. She graced Texas Stadium for several seasons with the DCC in Thanksgiving & Playoff halftimes and special performances.
"As a young girl, I was told to reach for my dreams. Never did I think that that reach would take me here", Jennifer said. "Moving from my little Junior DCC skirt to the actual DCC boots was a huge leap. Going to Pro Bowl takes that leap and lands me among the stars. And I hope to wear them well and proud in Orlando this year."
Jennifer was full of emotion when she found out she was headed to Orlando before the Lions vs. Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium:
When asked about how she felt in the moment, Jennifer was overwhelmed with joy. "Even being a candidate among these amazing women is the most humbling experience. Knowing that my teammates, DCC staff, and DCC fans voted for me to be our representative goes way past that. I feel so honored but also feel the weight of the standard set before me. We have had so many wonderful Pro Bowl cheerleaders, and to know that our teams votes, reputation, and confidence rests on my shoulders is huge. As we say all the time, I am extremely excited but nervous all at once!"
Jennifer is the the 25th representative of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders at the Pro Bowl, which takes place Sunday, January 29, 2017 at Camping World Stadium. In the week leading up to the game, Jennifer and her Pro Bowl Cheerleader teammates will rehearse their routines for the NFL's all-star game, as well as make several appearances.
