Fourth Year Paige Is A Dolphins Line Captain This Season

A while back Paige gave up possible frostbite as a NHL Florida Panthers Ice Dancer to risk sunburn as a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader. A gain for the NFL and South Florida sports fanatics. Our chat with Paige:

UC: Paige, welcome to Ultimate Cheerleaders. Let’s begin by introducing yourself to our readers.

Hello! My name is Paige. I’m from Jupiter, FL. This is my fourth year as a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and my first year as a Captain.

UC: Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders are well known for their charity and community initiatives. Do you have a favorite?

My favorite charity event that the Miami Dolphins participate in is the Dolphins Cancer Challenge. It’s a cause that I relate to on a personal level as my father is a colon and liver cancer survivor. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing our community come together to raise awareness and money for cancer research.

UC: Can you express the emotions experienced in performing as a Dolphins Cheerleader on such a large stage as Hard Rock Stadium?

Honestly, the game day “feels” cannot be put into words. It’s the most exhilarating feeling as we walk onto the field after hours, days, months of preparation for that exact moment. Hard Rock Stadium is our home and seeing all of our hard work pay off by the smiles on our fans faces as they enjoy the hometown experience is the fuel that keeps our energy so high.

UC: The Dolphins are well known for traveling internationally to visit USA troops, why is that so important?

Before I went on my first tour four years ago to Guantanamo Bay, I was told that tours would change my life. I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant but I couldn’t wait to experience and understand exactly what our alumni/staff meant by that statement. Meeting the men and women that sacrifice their lives for us every day was such a surreal moment. Seeing the other side of FaceTimes, being on the opposite side of phone calls, seeing the lives they live compared to the freedom we have at home is eye opening. We spend our time on base by not only bringing a piece of home to our troops with NFL Cheerleader performances but we connect on personal levels, creating friendships and lending an ear or shoulder when needed. After being deployed for months/years, our troops thank us for bringing the comfort of home to their bases. It’s a fulfilling feeling leaving a base knowing that you’ve left an imprint on someone’s life; even if it’s a picture taken or signed, a deep conversation or a smile/laugh shared, I am honored to be part of an organization that can give back to the men and women who give everything to ensure we can continue to live our lives freely.

UC: Dolphins cheerleaders are photographed thousands of times. In typical MDC style of going bigger and better the Swimsuit Calendar is now an Annual Book. Excited about your participation?

The Annual just blew me away last year. Especially because we shot all around the Florida Keys, really pinpointing all of the beautiful attractions the Keys have to offer. I was honored to be a part of the Annual last year and what made it so special was that all of the proceeds were donated to the relief fund for Hurricane Irma. I love the change of direction the team is taking annually. I do feel like it is very different from any other NFL organization and as we continue to grow every year, I cannot even imagine how original and eye catching the book will be this year. I am counting down the days until the official release date!

UC: One thing DolFans would be surprised to learn about is….?

One thing DolFans would be surprised to know is that besides cheering on game days and our involvement with our troops, we have three different committees that our squad is involved with. My favorite is the philanthropic committee. A group of us girls gather together and brainstorm ideas of how we can give back to the community. We reach out to charities and follow events that allow us to be involved and educate our squad as we rally up a crew to participate in as many charitable events as possible.

UC: Paige please pass our thanks along to your Manager Jamie Quadrozzi for allowing our Blog readers the opportunity to visit behind the “smiles” with such incredible Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Captains. Have a great season.
