"Cheer" Star Morgan Simianer Talks Lastly Residing On Her Personal

Trinity Valley Neighborhood School is coming for Navarro School's crown.

Within the second season of the Netflix docuseries Cheer, Navarro School coach Monica Aldama is making ready her team to go up towards Trinity Valley Neighborhood School athletes, who're led by coach Vontae Johnson

For years, the 2 groups have gone head-to-head on the Nationwide Cheerleaders Affiliation's Nationwide Championships in Daytona, Fla., with Navarro School persistently popping out on high. However it wasn't all the time that approach.

The TVCC Cardinals are 11-time nationwide champions and have been as soon as thought of superior to Navarro, which is situated solely about 40 miles away. In line with TVCC alum Craig Callaway, "Children would go to Trinity Valley for tryouts. In the event that they did not make Trinity Valley tryouts, they'd go to Navarro and make the crew there." 

However Vontae's method to teaching has helped the Cardinals return to their former glory. To be taught extra in regards to the crew, scroll on!

Johnson says he recruits athletes based mostly on "their character," not their standing: Vontae claims that he and Monica have totally different concepts of what makes a cheerleader good. Whereas Monica recruits "showmen," in line with Vontae, he says chooses those who have good hearts and a winner's mentality.

"Do not come to the Valley since you wish to be well-known," Vontae says within the first episode. "Come to the Valley since you wish to be the perfect."


Jada Wooten and Jeron Hazelwood are the crew captains: As top-of-the-line tumblers on the crew, Jada has taken on a management place for the Cardinals, and he or she's not one to let individuals telephone it in. "I've all the time been a pacesetter and I truly wish to do higher for my crew as an alternative of simply myself or my coach," Jada says. "I am attempting to be a task mannequin and lead for them the perfect I can." 

And, in line with Vontae, he is skilled Jada to the purpose the place "she will be humbly cocky, so she will be able to shine in her personal approach."

As for Jeron, he is as a stumbler, which is when a cheerleader can stunt and tumble. However that is not what makes him uniquely suited to be a pacesetter: Johnson says that he brings the "power" to a efficiency: "He could make a crew enhance to a different degree along with his character."

"When you might have any individual like Jeron, who can simply stroll right into a health club and by being himself permit different individuals to decompress a bit bit," assistant coach Kris provides, "you may't put a value on that."

Navarro misplaced out on the chance to convey Jeron onto the mat once they turned him down after an audition in 2016.


TVCC stole Navarro's choreographer for the 2019 championships: Whereas Vontae and Khris desire to deal with the technical points of cheer, they determined to convey on All Star choreographer Brad Vaughan, who beforehand labored with Monica for 13 years, to extend their possibilities of profitable first place. 

Although it is unclear why Brad and Monica parted methods, cheerleading organizer Invoice Smith makes it crystal clear that it will be an enormous deal to see the previous teammates up towards one another: "Wow... You have bought the coach and the protégé, who run the All Star world choreography-wise, going head-to-head."

Pair that with their spectacular cheerleaders, Jada, Jeron, DeVonte "Dee" Joseph and Angel Rice, and the Cardinals are beginning to appear like fierce opponents for Navarro.
