During the past two weeks, two Buffalo Jills Cheerleaders teamed up to provide their thoughts and insight to the Jills Cheerleader audition process. In today's final installment here on BuffaloBills.com, Lisa, a three-year Jills veteran and Natalie, the newest Jill, share their thoughts on making the 2010 Jills squad.
Here we go!
The 2010 season has officially begun, and I couldn't be more excited. The final team was announced this past Tuesday after the third cut. The new team has 44 girls total, 28 veterans and 16 rookies. I've had the opportunity to get to know a few of the rookies so far, and I'm really looking forward to the upcoming season with them.
There's been so many changes in the Bills organization this year (a few for the Jills as well) and I can't wait to see it all come together. First up in our schedule is supporting our Bills for Season Ticket Holder Draft Day events at the Field House, followed by a trip to Jamaica for our popular Jills calendar shoot.
Thank you to everyone who followed us through this difficult process and I'm proud to say, once again, that I'm a Buffalo Jill!
Natalie, Jills 2010 rookie:
Auditions are FINALLY over and I have made it through all the cuts...I am officially a member of the Buffalo Jills! This has been such a long process and I have put so much into it that I am more than happy to see all my hard work has paid off.
Tuesday night, after some final cuts were made, all of us that were left in the conference room had our names called one by one and told that we had made the team. When I heard my name called I just wanted to scream or jump around in excitement and relief but I tried to keep my composure while the other girls enjoyed their moments!
After the team was announced we got our first official picture taken as this season's team. It was such a great feeling to know that I get to be a part of it even though it has not really hit me yet!
Once the pictures were taken it was time to get right to business. We each received our informational binders with everything we will need to know about the program and how it works.
For myself, and I'm sure the other rookies feel the same, it was incredibly overwhelming to take in all that information at once as well as trying to process that we've actually made the team! Words can't even explain how happy I am and I'm looking forward to starting my new beginning as a*Buffalo Jill!*
