‘I want to be someone the girls can look up to’: Madison Perdue of Cold Springs looks to lead during her senior year

BREMEN, Ala. – Another happy season is underway and for Cold Springs senior Madison Perdue, she’s had fun cheering with a great group of girls and learned a lot in her time as a cheerleader so far.

“It was a great experience. It’s been a lot of fun, having different girls on the team. Everyone brings something different, and everyone serves a purpose. “We really grew as a team over the summer, and I’m excited to see the progress we make at the end of the season,” said Perdue. “I’ve been happy since I was in the first grade. The biggest thing I took away from being happy is the idea that we are a team. Everyone brings something different to the table and everyone has a role. Cheerleading should be about leading the community in supporting our teams. “

“Cold Springs is fortunate because our community is small. Because we are so close, everyone comes out to support each other. It’s been a great environment, having fun in front of people who you know care about the players as well as the players. “

Cold Springs has a new cheer coach this season in Mrs. Adrian Dickerson and Madison has gotten a lot out of her so far.

“Ma’am. Dickerson is very interesting. As a team, we have a lot of respect for him. We listen to what he tells us and the main thing he tells us is to have fun. One thing I took away from his teaching is that if we’re not having fun, no one else will. And although this applies mostly to happiness, I think this is true in everything. I really took everything to heart, and it helped me in many things besides happiness. ” Perdue said. “He taught us a lot of moves and how he danced when he was happy. My favorite thing he’s taught us so far is our dance for the new band, ‘To Dump.

Cold Springs has many experienced cheerleaders back this season and will have some exciting newcomers on the team as well. Madison and the rest of the seniors have coached the young cheerleaders so far and will be one of the leaders this year.

“The most important thing is to teach new supporters the spirit. It’s hard to be peppy and full of energy all the time, but it’s important to be a good cheerleader. One of my biggest goals this year is to live up to what I expect from our team. I don’t expect girls to do what I’m not doing. I really like to stay on top and that means being sharp, being loud, smiling, and being peppy. If I’m doing all these things, it will make other girls better.”

Madison worked on many things during the summer, and set some goals for herself and the team.

“I’ve been working hard to get in better shape, so I’m never out of breath. Shouting and moving all the time takes it out of you. It also helped me build muscle for kicking and jumping. I have been working on my imagination and flexibility as well,” he said. “My goal this year is to be remembered as a team leader. I want to be someone he can look up to, even after I graduate. I want to be All-County. The team’s goal this year is to bring the community together and empower our players to keep going, even when the game is tough. We are also working hard in the regional competition, and we hope to win.”

Madison talked about what will make the cheerleading team special to watch this year. He drew heavily from the class leaders before him and spoke of his greatest inspiration growing up.

“One thing that I think is very important is that every girl is a leader in her own way. Yes, we have team leaders, but every girl works hard and that has helped them lead others outside of the team. Everyone in this team tries their best to ensure that the public is happy and that the players know that they have the whole community supporting them,” he says. “I had the opportunity to have fun with some amazing girls. They all have different characteristics that make them unique as cheerleaders. The most important thing my top students did for me was to bring me out of my shell and push me to be a better leader of our school.”

“Growing up, my biggest inspiration for cheerleading was my mother. He went to Cold Springs and was a captain. My mother showed me what she used to do and when she fell, it made me want to be like her. She was my cheer coach from second-fifth grade and led us to two top three places and a win my fifth grade year. When I think of cheerleading, my thoughts immediately go to her. He will always be a champion in my memory.”
