As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the process of holding their 2012 auditions I thought it would be nice to have an Alumnus album for the TBBC members who gave their sweat and cheers in previous seasons. Here’s a start highlighting some multi-season fan popular young ladies. Bookmark this album as we add to it this off season.
Buccaneer Football was really bad this NFL season– fortunately the TBBC delivered another year of a talented attractive squad who supplied excellent game day entertainment and numerous community initiatives for the fan base. Last week’s Dallas game, shown on the NFL Network, showcased the Buccaneer Cheerleaders in their festive holiday outfits. Following is some tidbits from the bios of a few 2nd year veterans:
I was at Thursday’s (12/15) Lightning overtime win versus their Stanley Cup foes, the Calgary Flames. In between play I seized the opportunity to snap off a few photos of the Lightning Girls. Hopefully, after the Bucs season, we can obtain access to re-visit the Tampa Times Forum (new name) for a full photo-shoot of these energetic young ladies as they hop all over the arena mingling with the fans. Check back with us.
The latest Bucs spotlight is on three fan-favorite, impressive, veteran cheerleaders who are each in their 5th year of performing on the TBBC squad. Milly Figuereo, Kelli Jones and Maria Cartagena.
Milly graduated from the University of Tampa and is employed as an office manager for a commodities broker. Milly also does extensive TV work as an advertising spokesperson for Florida businesses. Milly’s favorite charity is “The Centre” –an organization that serves over 3,000 women, girls, and families each year.
Kelli has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah and is employed as a Promotions Producer for a local Tampa TV station. Kelli’s favorite charity is “Tampa Bay Watch, Inc”–stewardship program dedicated to protection of wetland environments of the Tampa Bay Estuary.
Maria is a student at USF pursuing her Marketing Degree and also works full time as an Account Manager in Tampa. Maria hopes some day to start her own business as a Event Planner. Maria’s charity work this year is dedicated to “A Kids Place”, an organization that houses abused at risk children.
Say hello to second year Buccaneer Cheerleader Ashlee Figg. Born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Ashlee is proud to say “the Bucs have always been my team and being part of this organization is a dream come true”.
Tampa native Britney Craine grew up a loyal Bucs fan and was extremely excited to first cheer for the reining Super Bowl Champions in 2003. In between a few breaks Brit is now in her 5th and final TBBC season.
Tampa fans are enjoying their 5th season of watching the very photogenic Jaime perform as a member of the “international known” Buccaneer Cheerleaders. Jaime is a registered licensed Dental Hygienist working in Tampa.
