Mary Huff asks “Let me start by saying that I enjoy watching the DCC Ladies every season Was just curious why you have a 5 year cap on cheering?”
Hi Mary and thank you for your question. We don’t actually have a “cap” on the number of years a Cheerleader can cheer for the Cowboys. The trend lately has been 5, and that seems to be a long run at our pace, but we have had 6, 7 and 8 year Veterans!
Vickie L. writes “I am a teacher overseas—I teach many technology and career classes. Having watched several of your seasons I have noticed several candidates have their prospective careers lost due to Facebook and other such social media outlets. My students, middle and high school aged boys and girls, do not see the future ramifications of these current decisions. Are their any words of wisdom you could have for them to these ends? What would your cheerleaders who have lost jobs have wished they would have known?”
Our advise to the Cheerleaders has been to not TYPE or post anything that could embarrass their families, themselves, or future employers. In our business, Facebook and Twitter have become more commonly used than resumes. Technology is wonderful, but has made them more vulnerable and visible.

“First I want to congratulate you on awesome TV show. I look forward every week to watch these gals battle their way to the top to become the best of the best. I resonate with this show, because I was a former U.S. Army Golden Knight and I know what it’s like to put 110% into something and hope and pray that you make the final cut.
Being the best of the best takes hard work, dedication, and most of all pride in what you do.
Keep up the hard work, and I hope to see Making the Team 8 next year.”
Larry, your email caught my attention because we Tandem jumped with the Golden Knights a few years back. It was one of the most thrilling and terrifying moments of my life! So a belated thank you to you and the Golden Knights for jumping with the DCC!
