First Deaf Cheerleader To Make OK All-State Team

By  |  0 Comments

It is safe to say that there are many challenges that come with cheerleading. Between the extensive workouts, intricate routines, and high level stunts and tumbling, there is a lot to learn and a lot to perfect. With all of that in mind, could you imagine not being able to hear while doing it all?

A senior high school student from Oklahoma is the perfect example of why it takes commitment to be a cheerleader. Eighteen year old Keith Montrell Adams is the first deaf student ever selected to be on Oklahoma’s All-State Cheerleading Team. He has spent countless hours practicing and perfecting his cheer skills in order to be eligible to try out for this team.

After going through two rounds of tryouts against a combined 102 cheerleaders, he was able to take a spot on this 16 person team. This was a great moment for Adams and for the deaf athlete community. He has shown that with great perseverance, any dream, goal, or idea is possible.

In addition to being a cheerleader, Adams also runs track, plays basketball, is a leader in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and a member of the National Honor Society.

Here at Chassé we encourage the kind of behavior that Adams has demonstrated. Being committed to your goals, no matter what challenges you may face, is crucial in becoming the best athlete, and person, that you possibly can. It is people like him that motivate each and every one of us to stay committed to our goals, and is proof that is will in fact pay off. We hope that all cheerleaders will use this story as inspiration to set the bar high and accomplish whatever they set their mind to. Do you have a similar story that you would like to share with us?
