A research page i was reading by Torie Bembry says, "When most people think of a college cheerleading team, they may picture the people on the sidelines cheering for the real athletes, but the sport of cheerleading involves so much more. Next time, take a good look at the cheerleading team. Those college cheerleaders are more than a group of people who cheer at games. They are dedicated athletes who work hard to support other teams at their university." People think of school cheer as support for the "real athletes" but they put a lot more work into being a cheerleader. In college they have different requirements to be on the teams so they aren't just supporters.
