"Getting to Know" Jacy Richardson

Monday, January 27, 2014

By Kaitlyn Dahle -- East Tennessean

East Tennessee State University cheerleader Jacy Richardson is a 19-year-old sophomore. She is originally from Kingsport, and is majoring in digital media.

“I have been cheering for as long as I can remember,” Richardson said. “I believe I started cheering on a team when I was in fourth grade.”

Besides being in the sport of cheerleading for about 11 years, she feels that her highest achievement in the sport of cheerleading is being able to cheer at the college level, especially at ETSU.

“I was drawn to the team here at ETSU for it is an all girls’ team,” she said, “and I feel that my biggest accomplishment is continuing my cheering career into college.”

Richardson said that she can’t wait for the new football team and for next year’s season to start so the cheerleading squad can rally the crowd during football games as well.

“I am excited for all the preparation and heightened ETSU pride for this new addition,” she said.
