Tampa Bay’s Anastasia, Lightning Girl To Buccaneer Cheerleader

Reprinted from the Daily Hampshire Gazette:

Anastasia “Anna” Lusnia grew up in Easthampton, Massachusetts rooting for the New England Patriots.

As a youth, she watched two of her favorite players, quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski, lead the Patriots to multiple Super Bowls. Unfortunately, she never got to attend a game. Her sister had that opportunity.

But everything has worked out.

After graduating from Easthampton High in 2015, Lusnia moved to Tampa, Florida. In the five years she has lived in the Sunshine State, she graduated from college, became a full-time nurse and cheered for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Lusnia left the Lightning after the 2018-2019 season for a shot with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. She landed the job, and now finds herself cheering for Brady and Gronk from the sidelines.

“It’s wild,” she said. “I never would have imagined I would be cheering in Tampa and they would be here with me. … It’s pretty surreal.”

A friend cheered for the Lightning, which was how Lusnia got involved with the NHL franchise that recently won the Stanley Cup.

A dancer her whole life, she thought cheering for the Lightning would be a fun way to continue performing. It turned out to be more than just that.

“I think representing an organization so large as the Tampa Bay Lightning provided so many experiences that I never knew existed,” she said. “Just meeting the fans, the season-ticket holder members; I even got to link up with a surgeon who was a season-ticket holder member and I’m a nurse so I got to shadow him; do all sorts of things I never would have imagined I could do by being a cheerleader for the Lightning.”

Lusnia, 23, pursued the opportunity with the Bucs earlier this year.

“After my experience (with the Lightning) I kind of thought maybe I’ll take it to the NFL,” she said. “To me that’s the ultimate in terms of the professional cheer world.”

The COVID-19 pandemic made tryouts interesting. Lusnia started training in February in both a gym and dance studio, then auditioned virtually in early May. Over the course of a couple weeks she had Zoom meetings and sent more videos.

Prior to the audition the Bucs landed two of the most prominent Patriots. Brady signed in March and Gronkowski was traded to Tampa Bay in April. By mid-May, Lusnia received a phone call that only added to the excitement.

“I was in full scrubs, not expecting it all,” she said of the phone call. “It was a video call and they recorded my reaction, which I did not know at the time. They caught me off guard, but it was an amazing day for sure.”

As an intensive care nurse at Tampa General Hospital, Lusnia is well aware of the pandemic and the issues the coronavirus can cause. Prior the start of the NFL season, there was a lot of uncertainty as to whether she would cheer or not.

“It’s been a roller coaster of a ride,” she said. “We’ve been just kind of living day by day. We never really knew if we were going to be able to cheer or if there were ever going to be fans. We’ve been practicing and training since June with the goal and hope that we will cheer, and dance and perform at some point in the season, whether it was the first game or midway through (the season). We’ve certainly been living on the edge. Just have to be super fluid with everything going on.”

Cheering has been an outlet from her full-time job.

“Dance has always been a No. 1 passion for me and it’s certainly a lot different than my work in the hospital, even just the physical exercise,” she said. “I’ve always loved to work for something and the drive and the determination to get to where I want to be physically and performance wise. It’s definitely a great outlet.”

Lusnia has a deep background in dance. She trained for 15 years at the Hackworth School of Performing Arts in Easthampton, as well as the Massachusetts Academy of Ballet in Holyoke.

She has also been involved with the Miss America Organization, holding the titles of Miss Pioneer Valley, Miss Baystate and Miss Kissimmee in Florida. She competed in Miss Massachusetts pageants in 2015 and 2016, as well as the Miss Florida pageant in 2017.

She moved to Tampa to attend the University of South Florida.

“That’s one of the things when discovering this whole professional cheerleading world is you can have a full-time job and cheer for a professional sports team,” Lusnia said. “Both with the Lightning and Buccaneers we don’t travel to away games so that’s my saving grace. I don’t think I could do both, nursing and cheering if we did. It’s an amazing way to continue (dancing). I never really imagined after college I could still be dancing at this level so intensely and frequently.”

Lusnia’s first NFL game was Sunday when the Bucs hosted the Los Angeles Chargers. Brady threw for five touchdowns as the Bucs rallied for a 38-31 win.

“It was an incredible experience,” she said. “I think the adrenalin of the pregame, watching the players warm up, being right outside that home tunnel, our locker room is kind of right behind it; taking it all in was just incredible.”

A bonus that comes with cheering for the Bucs this year is that no matter what happens with Tampa Bay, the Super Bowl will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. So whether Brady, Gronk and the Bucs are playing in the game or not, Lusnia will be participating.

“We will be at a ton of events in Tampa for the Super Bowl, regardless if we are in it,” she said. “I am very, very excited for really any outcome because it’s here in our city at our stadium. We’ll get to be a part of it.”

Texans Takeaways Sink Buccaneers 23 to 20

In the NFL you can not turn the ball over 5 times and expect to win the game. The Buccaneers defense play well enough to win, the offense and special teams units did not! Another head shaking performance by quarterback Jameis Winston sealed the agonizing defeat. Home record is 2 and 5 this year. Totally unacceptable results are directly correlated to the interceptions.
.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders had another day of superb performances. Their Christmas theme dances, with reindeer antlers, were fun to watch. As always the ladies were out on the plaza pregame mingling with the dedicated fan base. The Buccaneer organization is constantly adding game day festivities but they need more wins to recapture the sell out crowds of yesteryear.
.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays to all.

Buccaneers Corral Colts In 38 to 35 Shootout

Jameis Winston came back from an injured throwing hand and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, behind Winston’s career-high 456 passing yards and 5 total touchdowns, came back from two double-digit deficits to beat the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Most teams that have quarterback controversy have two individual players to choose from. Not the Buccaneers, they have an Dr. Jekyll – Mr. Hyde player! Is Winston the five touchdown man or the 4 turnover QB? It’s simply mystifying that his NFL playing career is so inconsistent. The Bucs fell behind because of Winston but came back because of Winston!

Bottom line is a win is a win, three in a row. On to Detroit next weekend. Go Bucs!

No mystery regarding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders. They are talented, beautiful and photogenic. They had the Junior Cheers in for a halftime performance. Enjoy our photo album.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders Photos from Week 11

Not too long ago, the NFC South was considered the most competitive division in the NFL, but it appears that a couple of teams will be in rebuild mode come the next draft and one of them will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This past Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosted the New Orleans Saints who have endured a period without future Hall of Fame signal caller Drew Brees, who was recovering from a hand injury.  He was back and led the Saints to a fairly convincing victory over the Buccaneers. 

Final score: Saints – 34, Buccaneers – 17.

Another poor performance by Bucs QB Jameis Winston, who threw four interceptions, and an absolutely horrible rushing attack were indicative of the state of the franchise.  The Bucs need a total overhaul and those two areas seem to be the place to start.

On to better things.  If the football team needs to reload, one area that is in fine standing is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders.  This week, they were wearing patriotic themed uniforms for their Salute to Service game.  Click here to view the Buccaneers gallery of images from last week.

Buccaneers Get Win Over Cardinals On Homecoming Weekend

It’s been seven Sundays since the the Buccaneers last played at home. The fans needed a victory and the Bucs came though with an exciting back and forth scoring game with the Cardinals, 30 to 27 final. Overall number one draft choice Kyler Murray ran the Cardinals and his mobility certainly presented challenges. The Bucs used the strategy of just match him and then score last. It worked! Embattled cornerback Jamel Dean made the big interception that allowed the Bucs offense to drive the length of the field for the winning touchdown. Go Bucs!!!
.
A very busy day at Raymond James Stadium yesterday. The Buccaneers celebrated the “Crucial Catch” cancer cure initiative of the NFL. The Junior Cheers performed at halftime with the Buccaneer Cheerleaders all dressed out in Pink. On this Veterans Day weekend many military members were also acknowledged and thanked.
.
As is custom, many of the cheerleaders were out on the plaza pregame greeting and posing with fans young and old alike.
.
Next home contest is November 17th versus the Saints, the annual Salute to Service game. Tickets are available.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders Photos from Week 6

Last Sunday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a turnover machine and the Carolina Panthers were the primary beneficiary.  Gifted five interceptions and two fumbles, the Panthers didn’t have to work hard for their points last week and as you would expect, a win was forthcoming. 

Final score: Panthers – 37, Buccaneers – 26.

Aside from the loss, I hope that the Buccaneers at least enjoyed their trip to Great Britain.  It is always nice to travel abroad and meet new people and I am sure Londoners enjoyed meeting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders.  Let’s take a look at last week’s photos from London.  Click here to view the Buccaneers photos from last Sunday.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders Photos from Week 3

Last Sunday was the debut of Daniel Jones, the new starting quarterback for the New York Giants, and he had an auspicious debut, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for another two.  Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, that performance was just enough to led the G-man back from an 18 point second half deficit for the win. Final score: Giants – 32, Bucs – 31.

Let’s turn our attention to something more positive…this week’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders photos.
