I honestly hope that this post makes some amount of sense, and does not sound like a jumbled up mess, like alot of things I end up typing. Ok, so on with the point of this post. So considering the fact I am in my senior year of high school, and somehow managed to graduate a semester early ( still trying to figure this one out.) I have really taken notice in other peoples plans after high school, and I have noticed a lot of girls and guys that cheer at my school and gym are basing where they will go to college off of how well/good the cheer team is. As a parent or even a coach, what are your opinions on this? I actually had a conversation with one of my best friends who said that she is only considering Alabama, Louisville, Kentucky, or Oklahoma due to how successful the cheer teams are ( I am only aware of Louisville and Kentucky's success in the cheer world.) For some reason, this bothers because I just feel like your education should be put before cheer...but that is just me. This same girl is also mad at me right now for not looking into the same colleges as her. Another girl I cheer with has said she is only considering Alabama because she feels that cheering for a successful football team will get her further in life. I guess my thing is when as athletes do we draw the line on putting cheer before everything?
