I’ve got to be honest, I was all prepared to mock these moms for making their sons’ football games all about them.
Then I watched the video and I have to admit, they’re pretty cute.
As Huffington Post reports, these Michigan moms decided to form their own cheerleading squad. Only 215 students attend La Salle High School. While they have a great football team, not enough students are interested in trying out for cheerleading, so the moms of sixteen football players took matters into their own hands.
They wear their sons’ away game jerseys, get out on the field and perform cheers. Of course, as the coach says, all the cheers are from the seventies, but that isn’t stopping these wild women from cheering their sons on. As Huffington Post reports, the cheering is paying off. “With an undefeated record for the season, La Salle’s football team ventured into the Division 8 state semi-finals on Saturday. Their mothers have been there every stomp, step and toe-touch of the way.”
I’m just waiting for an update video from semi-finals in hopes that the moms have prepared a half-time routine that includes stunting.
What do you think? Is this a good thing for the boys on the football team? Or do you think the moms are making it all about themselves? And even if they are, is that really a big deal? Watch the video below and tell me what you think. Would you join the squad if this was your son’s football team?
