Our spotlight this week goes to cheerleader Holly Sellers for inspiring the fans to yell “DEFENSE” as the Bucs held on to defeat the birds from Atlanta.

Holly, a recent graduate from USF, is a elementary education teacher in Tampa Bay. Her radio is usually blasting with country music (HeeHaw). Her swimsuit photos have landed her on the cheerleader calendar cover a few times.

Fifth year Holly, a line captain, takes her role model status seriously and actively works with her group in a community initiative for “A Kids Place” located in Brandon, FL.

In what I hope will become a regular feature, the Buccaneers Cheerleader spotlight for NFL Week#1 is reserved for 2nd-year veteran Nikki Fraser.

Like all members of TBBC, Nikki is active in community support and this year she is working with two fine Tampa Bay organizations; “A Kids Place” and “Hope Children’s Home”. Outside of her cheerleading commitment Nikki spends time on nursing studies, modeling and as a dance instructor.

Tampa fans heartbroken over Tiffany’s retirement have reason to smile. She’ll be an in-game announcer at Raymond James Stadium this fall.

Central Florida is a sports paradise for viewing college and professional sports. With the NHL, NBA and NFL asleep I finally got the time to go see the AFL Arena game. Tampa Bay Storm football is action packed entertainment and the family value is unmatched.

The Storm Dancers are part of the very fan friendly atmosphere. Besides leading cheers on the field they also greet patrons on the outside plaza before games and join the players mingling with fans for autograph/photo sessions during post game. Since 2003 the squad has been led by Ms. Kindra Strocher-Ebanks, Director/Choreographer. Kindra was also a Storm Dancer for three years and has developed an informal “underground railroad” for recruiting University of South Florida alumni—–current members Tiffany, Cori, Samantha and Sasha all danced on the Sundolls team at USF. Kindra also was manager twice of the All Star team at the ArenaBowl.

Friday’s (July 1st) game theme was “salute to military” and members of the armed services were introduced throughout the night. A real feel good evening. During the week Savenah, Trista, Jessica and Rachel courageously volunteered for a shooting simulation and repel exercises at the USF ROTC buildings. Sasha, Charlyne and Vanessa participated in a skydiving outing with SOCOM at MacDill Air Force base. The girls also routinely visit the local VA Hospital and interact with the wounded soldiers. The dancer’s red box collections for the night went to the Treats for Troops organization for mailing care packages to deployed forces. Just recently these young ladies also assisted at the Derrick Brooks Charity Foundation. Mr. Brooks is the new President of the Storm and has very supportive of the Dance Team and it’s value to the organization.
