Lorelei is a 8-year-old All Star cheerleader from San Antonio Spirit. She is currently a flyer on the gym's Youth Level 2 team, Teal.
Lorelei got her start in All Star in an unexpected way. "A girl dropped out of the team right before a competition and the coach asked me to consider joining the team! I was hooked from the first practice!"
USASF launched a contest this past competition season looking for athletes and programs to rise to the occasion and showcase why they love All Star cheer and dance.
Lorelei was one of ten winners selected by the USASF for being an outstanding role model on social media and truly Amplifying what All Star cheer is all about. The post that Loreleli was chosen for was a stunt video.
"Even though I didn’t get it quite right, I fought to keep the stunt up in the air instead of just giving up. That determination represents the spirit inside all of All Star Cheer."

What keeps you coming back to All Star cheer year after year?
I just love it so much! I love the challenge, the friendships, and the hard work involved in making that perfect moment happen onstage. There is nothing else like it!
