Pro Bowl Cheerleader Tecoya Says Her Goodbye

Posted Apr 4, 2013

Co-Captain and 2013 Pro Bowl Cheerleader Tecoya shares her goodbye

Dear Redskins Fans,

This is probably one of the hardest things I've had to do as an adult, but after 4 years, I will be retiring as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. As I write this letter, I can still remember my first draft day, first fan appreciation, and most importantly when they called #45 as a new member on the team in 2009 (yes, I still remember my audition number).  I have done so much with the Redskins organization and can not fully express into words my gratitude for every opportunity given.

By being a Washington Redskins Cheerleader, I have been given many performance opportunities, the chance to support our troops overseas, and memorable appearances that allowed us to bring Redskins to you, up close and personal. I can do nothing but smile, as I reflect on the speechless moments this experience has added to my life.

I would like to thank my beloved and most respected Director, Stephanie Jojokian, for constantly pushing me to reach my maximum potential. I thank every captain I've ever gotten to work with for showing me the prime example of a leader. I thank every woman who has ever hit the field on game day, for I am constantly reminded of the words: passion, dedication, commitment, and most importantly SISTERHOOD. I thank my teammates for believing in me to be their representative as the 2013 Pro Bowl Cheerleader. The humbleness and honor that stems from such a title is indescribable, and I hope you feel like I have lived up to what was expected. And Last, but certainly not least, I have to thank the oh so famous Redskins Fans! Game day isn't the same without your energy and support. I will miss familiar faces, Bud Tent, Fifth Quarter, the Hogettes, and seeing the smile on a kid's face when he or she is brought to a home game for the very first time.

So, REDSKINS FANS, this is it! Once again, I thank you for all of your kindness, support, and keepsake moments. You won't be able to catch me on the sidelines, but you can definitely save me a seat in the stands. I am forever a fan of the Washington Redskins and of course, Hail to the Redskins!!

Cheers and Love,
