What’s a football team without their cheerleaders and their mighty mascot?
Three years and still going,16 year old Amadeus Guerrero is leading Charlotte with spirit and getting everyone pumped up for Friday night football games. In his freshmen year, he started out as a bit nervous, and now, in his junior year, his confidence has grown.
If you happen to walk by him, you’ll always see a smile on his face as he is yelling chants or running with the Charlotte Trojan flag high in the air. He’s the kind of person who everyone loves because he’s hilarious and always finds a way to put you in a good mood.
“Over the years of cheerleading, I have experienced many trials and I have learned that I’m not only doing it for myself, but I’m doing it for the kids. It really makes my heart feel full of joy when the kids get excited when I’m cheering,” said Guerrero.
Guerrero puts all his heart into cheering and he absolutely loves it. He has experienced watching children jump up with joy and seeing their faces full of smiles. By having the chance of taking on a big role for being the Trojan Mascot, he has impacted his community by bringing spirit anywhere he goes.
Maria Garza, cheer sponsor, had a few words to say about Guerrero and how he has been doing this year.
“The first year that I had him, he had a lot to learn with different methods after going to camp. After camp he started to improve and this year he really came out of his shell with a lot more spirit. He is also more energetic during our games with pumping up the crowd,” she said.
“Hopefully I can pass the torch to someone who has as much pride as I do for my school when I graduate,” stated Guerrero.
Make sure to come out and watch some Friday night football to support the Charlotte Trojans along with the cheerleaders and watch Guerrero as he pumps up the crowd.
