    (1987- )
    Resides in Springfield, Illinois
    College Student/Cheerleader for Southern Illinois University
    Fell 15 feet onto her head during a cheering routine (March 5, 2006)
    Cracked her neck vertebra
    Suffered a concussion
    She lost her balance.
    She delayed the nationally televised game and quieted the crowd. Her cheerleading coached urged her not to move while on the gurney and risk further injury, but she continued cheering.
    She is a cheerleader for the SIU Salukis.
    After falling 15 feet onto her head, she continued to cheer.
    After being strapped to a gurney with only her arms free she gave thumps up to let the crowd know she was okay.
    As she was being carted off, the band played the SIU fight song. She pumped her fists in the air in rythm to the song.
    She said her reasoning was to let her team not worry about her and hopefully pep them up.
    Her team went on to beat Bradley 59-46.
    She said from her hospital bed 'As long as my arms were functioning, I could do the fight song.'
    She countinued: 'I didn't want the team to get distracted. I needed them to win for me.'
    The victory earned her team a berth into the NCAA Tournament.
    She made a full recovery.
