“The cheerleaders really enjoy getting out there in front of an audience and cheering and doing their thing that they’ve practiced. I think the football players really enjoy practicing the moves, the scrimmage, the plays that they’ve been practicing. Getting their hands on the ball is very important to them,” President & CEO of Global Down Syndrome Michelle Whitten.
