Cheerleaders support team against King

After a long Hillsborough touchdown at the game against King, the Terrier cheerleading squad breaks into a cheer of “Go Big Red!”

The Hillsborough varsity cheerleaders have 30 total cheers but stick to about 15.

Any of the cheerleaders can decide what cheer they will call but it depends on whether the football players are on offense or defense. A cheerleader will call the first few words of a cheer so the rest of the team knows what cheer they are going to call.

Sophia Stallworth, the coach, says they are trying to “keep it simple this year so the crowd can learn and cheer along.”

You can see the cheerleaders cheer on the football team this Friday at the homecoming game against Chamberlain at 7:30.
