2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Carolina Panthers TopCats Cheerleader Kayla

One of the most pleasant surprises of this year’s P-R-O Convention was appearance of the Carolina Panthers TopCats.  They sent five representatives to this year’s event and they were a breath of fresh air.  Resplendent in their game day uniforms, the TopCats left a lasting impression and I made it priority to photograph as many of them as I could for this series. 

So without further ado, introducing our newest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star, Carolina Panthers TopCats cheerleader Kayla.
















We are down to our final 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star, so check tomorrow to see is our special lady.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Carolina TopCat Cheerleader Annalise

As we begin winding down our coverage of the 2019 P-R-O Convention, we would like to mention that there were over 250 beautiful and talented cheerleaders and dancers in Atlanta.  We would have like to share some quality time with more of them, but time would not allow us to do so.

However, we did focus our attention some new teams and new faces.  One of the new teams was the Carolina TopCats and they left a lasting impression.  Though they only brought five girls to P-R-O, they were special and I was able to photograph four of them.

Our latest 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star is the third member of the TopCats that I photographed for this feature.  So without further ado, let me introduce you to TopCat Annalise.














We still have a few more talented women to feature, so check back soon to see who is our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2019 P-R-O Convention All Star: Carolina TopCats Cheerleader Keleigh

When I became aware of all the new squads that would be in attendance at the 2019 P-R-O Convention in Atlanta, there was one in particular that I was excited to see…The Carolina Panthers TopCats.  As I aggregated NFL content for UltimateCheerleaders.com last fall, one squad stood out and they were the TopCats.   With beautiful girls and colorful uniforms, I hoped to be able to photograph a few TopCats for our readers.  As luck would have it, I was able to shoot all four that were in attendance in Atlanta.

So without further ado, introducing Carolina TopCats Cheerleader Keleigh…our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star.
















Our cavalcade of amazing cheerleaders and dancers continues. Check back tomorrow to see who is our next 2019 P-R-O Convention All Star. I think we will be staying the state of North Carolina for our next honoree, but you can never be sure of these things!

NFL Regular Season Week 15 – The Carolina TopCats

We continue our coverage of Week 15 of the NFL regular season with the Carolina TopCats.  Click here to view the Panthers latest gallery of images.

NFL Regular Season Week 12 – The Carolina Panthers TopCats

The Carolina Panthers lost a heart breaker on Sunday on the very last play of the game, a 45 yard field goal by the Seahawks ageless kicker, Sebastian Janikowki.  But that’s okay because if I had the TopCats to cheer up my spirits, I’m good as can be after a tough loss.  Click here to see this week’s TopCats photos.

NFL Regular Season Week 9 – The Carolina TopCats

When I look at the Carolina Panthers, I don’t see a prototypical NFL offense like, say, the New England Patriots or the Green Bay Packers with a healthy Aaron Rodgers.  I see a team with an offense loaded with disruptive play makers that make it difficult to defend them schematically.  I see a talented quarterback in Cam Newton who can win a game with his feet as well as his arm.  I see hybrid running backs who can catch passes in space and exploit defensive mismatches.  I see a diverse set of wide receivers that make opponents defend the width of the field as well as the length. 

And the Panthers have a pretty solid defense too, led by a future Hall of Fame linebacker who literally plays all over the field.  So it should come as no surprise that the Panthers soundly defeated a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that give a very good accounting of themselves, but fell short.  The Panthers are a playoff team and Buccaneers are not quite there yet.  Final score: Panthers – 42, Buccaneers – 28.

Let us recap the Panthers advantages.  Disruptive offense…check.  Dominant defense…check.  Amazing cheerleaders…double check.  Click here to view this week’s TopCat images.

NFL Regular Season Week 8 – The Carolina TopCats

We continue our coverage of Week 8 of the NFL regular season with another look at the Carolina TopCats.  To view this week’s images, click here to view the Panthers game day gallery.

NFL Regular Season Week 5 – The Carolina TopCats

Last week there were a number of very close games in the NFL.  This week, not so much, but one that was close was the game between the New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers.  Odell Beckham Jr. returned to his old self, catching 8 passes for 131 yards and one TD.  He even threw a pass for a TD to Saquon Barkley.  Cam Newton was his old self, throwing two TDs and two picks.  In one of the defining moments of the game, Newton threw a crushing block to help Christian McCaffrey/DJ Moore bust a run for a big gain.  All things considered, it was a rather even affair that came down to a last second field goal by Graham Gano.  Panthers win, 33 – 31.

With the recap out of the way, let’s turn our attention to the Carolina TopCats, who also had a nice game.  Click here to view the TopCats images from the game.

NFL Regular Season Week 3 – The Carolina TopCats!

In Week 3 of the NFL regular season, the Cincinnati Bengals made the trek to Charlotte to battle the Carolina Panthers and the game could be summarized as a tale of two quarterbacks: one that threw four interceptions and one that scored four touchdowns.  Fortunately for the Carolina Panthers, their quarterback, Cam Newton, was the one who scored four TDs, two rushing and two passing.  Advantage Panthers, 31 – 21.

Looks like the TopCats caught a break in the rainy weather that has plagued the last two home games and judging from the photos the weather was rather nice, all things considered.  Click here to see for yourself.
