Dawson Gessner

Hi I'm Dawson Gessner! I'm 18 and a Senior at Carlson High School and I'm on the varsity wrestling team. I've been cheering at Sparks since I was two years old! It's always been a home for me! Everyone there and everyone I cheer with, is like part of my family! I want to go to the University of Louisville for college and want to be apart of their cheerleading program and to become a veterinarian!

Jordan Younglove

Jordan has been cheering for 11 years, starting as an all star cheerleader and working her way onto being on a varsity cheer team at her school.

She has won several championships through her all star cheerleading experience, and would like others to feel that joy of accomplishment. She enjoys being apart of cheer and loves being able to teach others more about tumbling and cheer so that they can also grow as an athlete. Jordan works to encourage her teammates as well as those she is coaching while maintaining a positive attitude so that everyone is safe and happy. She enjoys being in the cheer environment and hopes she is able to help others grow as cheerleaders.
