BLAKE BUDLONG

Growing up, I played multiple sports but I’ve always been around the cheer industry as well. My brother, Mitch Budlong, was part of Lewisville Bell Crew at Lewisville High School, a group that consisted of male cheerleaders. My family would always attend the competitions that he would go to in Orlando, FL. He attended the University of Kentucky and received a full ride scholarship. This influenced me and brought my attention to the possibilities that cheer provided. At that point, I decided to drop playing football and join the cheer team my sophomore year. I continued cheering all the way through my senior year where I became captain. My squad has attended UCA summer camps and competed at UCA regional, state, and nationals competitions. My senior year, I was offered an application to work for UCA (Universal Cheerleading Association). I tried out, made it, and currently am still working UCA summer camps. I’ve also competed at the all star level at Excite Cheer and Gym and Maverick All Stars. After high school, I cheered and competed at Weatherford College and Texas Tech University.

JACKIE BOB PEARSON

Former collegiate and all-star athlete turned NFL cheerleader, Jacqueline has always excelled on and off the football field. She has over 20 years of experience in the cheer and dance industry
and documented success in her sales career.
This former San Francisco 49ers Cheerleader was a team captain during her four year tenure and was given the highest honor a NFL cheerleader can receive, being selected to represent the San Francisco 49ers Organization in the 2009 Pro Bowl All Star Game. Still seeking the challenge and the excitement that the NFL brings, Jacqueline pursued her long time dream and auditioned to join the world famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. It was there she also received the honor of being voted a team captain for three seasons and was selected as a member of an elite group of performers known as the “Show Group” known for world travels on USO Tours to entertain and support our service men and women stationed overseas. Other notable mentions include Veteran of the Year with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and a second appearance to the NFL Pro Bowl All-Star Game representing the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

She is the only cheerleader in NFL history to represent two franchises during the Pro Bowl All-Star Game and is currently still representing the Dallas Cowboys as an All-Star Cheerleader Ambassador.

In addition to performing on the sidelines, Jackie has taught thousands of young dancers at the DCC Academy, a youth summer program that focuses on coordination, choreography, self-esteem building, public speaking and team building activities for young women in the DFW and internationally. She currently serves as the Youth Camp Coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Summer Camp Academy.
