2015 NFL Preseason Week 3 – The Seahawks vs The Chargers

Week 3 of the preseason saw the Seattle Seahawks fly into San Diego to play the Chargers in a titanic battle of…okay…it was just another preseason game. The defending Super Bowl Champions…uh…Super Bowl runner ups survived the unseasonably hot weather to prevail in the last minute on a 60 yard field goal by Steven Hauschka, 16-15.

If you like kicks, this was a game for you as three kickers combined to score six field goals. Yawn. Me? I like kicks of a different sort.










The San Diego Chargers honored the men and women in uniform at this past Saturday’s game, holding their 27th annual Salute to the Military celebration. The Charger Girls were adorned in military theme uniforms to cheer on the boys in blue, but it was to no avail as the Chargers succumbed to the defending Super Bowl Champion Seahawks.

Side note: I never played a down of football in my life, but I am smart enough to know that if you are on the opponent’s one yard line in the Super Bowl with seconds left in the game and you have a player nicknamed “Beastmode”, you feed him the ball…on second down…on third down…and on fourth down.

I am a proud San Diego Chargers season ticket holder and a Charger Girl fan…like most of you reading this article. So let’s kick off this week’s coverage of the Charger Girls with the captains: Tawnie, Katelyn, Kayla, and Tina.





This week’s Charger Girl of the Day is a second year veteran who really caught my eye this year…introducing Delani!

SI.com: Farewell to the Islanders Ice Girls

SI.com: The New York Islanders will cart plenty of tradition along with them as they make their move from the Nassau Coliseum to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for the 2015-16 season. But one longstanding tradition will be very noticeable by its absence: the Islanders Ice Girls. In their place will be a co-ed ice crew charged with “helping create the best ice possible as mandated by the NHL.” Back in 2001, the Isles were the first NHL club to create a cheerleader-style Ice Girls squad that, along with performing various promotional duties, was charged with shoveling loose snow off the ice at stoppages.

Tess Named Raiderette of the Week

Second-year Raiderette Tess has been selected as Raiderette of the Week for 2015 Preseason Week 3

By Eddie Paskal

essSecond-year Raiderette Tess loves football. She loves the roar of the crowd on game day and she loves being on the sidelines of O.co Coliseum cheering on the Silver and Black.

Over the past few years though, she’s discovered another love – one that isn’t quite as noisy as the energetic crowds on Sundays.

“One thing I started like two or three years ago was yoga,” said Tess. “I got really into it and I consider myself a yogi now. When I’m not dancing, I’m doing yoga, and it’s been really fun and challenging too. I really like it and it helps keep me centered when my life is really crazy, which it usually is with work, and Raiderettes and everything.”

In addition to her newfound love of yoga, Tess also has a passion for all things outdoors – a passion she shares with one of her fellow Raiderettes.

“I like to do outdoor stuff a lot, like hiking. Jen and I go hiking on Mission Peak,” Tess said. “I’ve gotten really into that like hiking and outdoorsy stuff.”

“It’s really awesome and I’m really glad we started doing it,” Tess continued. “We actually did it to get in shape for auditions, but then we continued it because it really helps keep us in shape. It’s also fun and we can catch up on the way there.”

Heading into her second season as one of Football’s Fabulous Females, Tess is more confident and comfortable as a Raiderette than she was as a rookie.

“I feel like obviously I have a better handle on things,” Tess said. “I feel like my first year was a whirlwind of emotions and everything. Game day was so exciting but also super nerve racking. I feel like now I’m more ready and prepared. I feel more comfortable and I’m really excited.”

Tess thoroughly enjoys all aspects of her Raiderette life, from dancing, to practices, to making community appearances, but game day still stands out as her favorite.

“Game days are so much fun,” Tess said. “Game day is the best.”

Game day is nothing though without the energy and enthusiasm of Raider Nation, and it is that enthusiasm that propels Tess and the rest of the Raiderettes through 60 minutes of football.

“The crowd is always amazing and the fans are awesome,” Tess said. “Usually the fourth quarter is my favorite, even though we’re all really tired, but that’s when the fans are going the craziest. They are so loyal and diehard that’s it’s hard to be tired when they’re cheering so loudly.”

Cavalier Girl: Neshannock resident realizes dance dream in Cleveland

Constance Richards
By Andrew Koob
New Castle News
August 29, 2015

Constance Richards took her time to try out for the Cleveland Cavaliers dance team.

It always was a dream of the Neshannock High graduate to be a Cavalier girl, but her work as a student and cheerleader at Kent State University took top priority.

It wasn’t until after Richards graduated in May from Kent State with a bachelor’s degree in marketing that she finally pushed herself to audition.

“I had thought about it for years to audition,” Richards said. “I kept putting it back, saying ‘maybe I’ll do it.’ After graduation, I didn’t know what I was doing yet and Cleveland was definitely on my top places of where I’d like to move. This was a dream of mine, I just went for it and tried it out.

“I’m really happy that I did.”

That dream was finally realized as Richards officially was named to the 2015-2016 Cavaliers dance team. She joins 19 other dance team members that not only entertain on the court, but serve as ambassadors of the organization off the court.

“When I first found out, I was definitely in shock,” Richards said. “I started screaming, I think I woke up everyone in my house. It was honestly just the greatest feeling. To just know that there were a lot of girls, a lot of obstacles and that they picked me, it was just a dream. To make that dream come true was truly amazing and it’s an big honor that I can call myself a Cleveland Cavalier girl.”

The elation of making the team continues to stay with the 22-year-old, but now the real work begins. The team already has started practicing for the upcoming season, including training camp this weekend, and continues to make public appearances.

A hectic schedule is perfect for someone as active as Richards, especially since a whirlwind summer that started when she received her degree.

“We’ve had a couple of practices already and had the opportunity to do an appearance in Canton, Ohio,” Richards said. “The season hasn’t started, but we have, and every week we have something different, which is cool.

“As a dancer, I don’t really believe in days off. Every day I like to do something, even if it isn’t with the team in Cleveland, I like to try to work out or something like that. We have a little bit of time before it starts, but I’m ready for it.”

After growing up in Neshannock Township and spending four years at Kent State, which has an enrollment was just under 30,000, Richards is looking to make a new life in a city with a population of almost 400,000.

It will be an adjustment, especially as she searches for a full-time job, but the allure of a big city adds a bonus to a dream position.

“Growing up in such a small town, then going to a big university and now to such a big city is really exciting,” Richards said. “I think it’s fun to come down to where you grew up, you get to see everyone and everything, but I love the feeling of a big city. There’s always something different and I love meeting new people. That’s why, to me, it’s a great job. I love to meet different people and socialize. Cleveland will be a good city for me.”

Richards, who started dancing and was a teacher at Ludovici Dance Academy, is a part of the family that has become well-known through Zambelli fireworks. And, while she’s appreciative of a name well-known throughout New Castle, Richards is ready to make her own mark.

“It’s great and I love that my family have such a great name in New Castle. But it’s exciting for me that I just graduated and I’m making a name for myself,” Richards said. “My family worked hard, but now it’s my time to work hard and make a name for myself. I’m really excited about it.”

The newest edition of the Cavs dance team will debut on Oct. 13 when the Cavaliers host the Milwaukee Bucks for the first home preseason game.

Until then, all Richards can do is dream about performing in front of thousands of Cleveland fans.

“When we had the preliminary auditions, they were in the arena. I kept thinking to myself that this could be where I’m performing. It was the most unreal feeling, that’s all you hope for as a dancer, to have that chance to perform in front of all of those people,” Richards said. “I feel like I’ll definitely have some nerves, but you have to be a little bit nervous. It’s a normal thing, but I think I’ll just be too excited. I picture it every day, performing in front of all of those people.”

Washington Redskins Cheerleader Calendar Reveal Party

On Thursday, however, the spotlight was all theirs as the First Ladies took the stage at the Fillmore Silver Spring to unveil their 2015-2016 Cheerleader Calendar, which can be purchased by clicking here.

The much-anticipated calendar, in its 18th year of production, is the result of a week of hard work earlier this year in Cozumel, Mexico, at the Occidental Grand Resort. There, the 1st Ladies spent early mornings, long days and late nights getting the perfect shots together to fill out each month of the year.

“It’s wonderful to see our hard work come to fruition,” Redskins Cheerleader Taylor said. “It’s just great to be able to show the calendar to the world and share the product of our work with everyone.”

Kicking off the event, all 36 members of the squad mingled with fans and VIPs, signed copies of the new calendar, took pictures and showed the crowd what the First Ladies are all about.

“It’s awesome to see the fans. We feel really supported,” 1stLady Christa said. “We think that the cheerleaders are such a big part of the Redskins organization and the proof is in the pudding when we have so many fans coming out for this.”

After getting up close and personal with fans, groups of Cheerleaders took the stage for the first of many performances: some that have been seen on the field, and others that were brand new.

In between performances, the Ladies were joined on stage by members of the Women of Washington Fan Club and Redskins Salute to strut their stuff down the runway, modeling outfits from STUDIO D’MAXSI, D’Milikah, CABI, “And Such,” South Moon Under and the Redskins Hall of Fame Store.

Josie Claiborne, one of the WOW members selected to participated in the event, was thrilled to share the stage with the Cheerleaders.

“I’m so proud,” she said with a smile. “I have my family here – my husband and two friends – and I’m so excited to be a part of it.”

Following the final performance, the three cover girls — Maigan, Rachel K. and Taylor — returned to the stage to share their favorite memories from the shoot in Cozumel which included burying teammates in the sand, hosting a “Beauties on the Beach” TV show and building friendship bonds that will last a lifetime.
