Washington Redskins Cheerleader Farewell: Rachel K.

Posted Mar 28, 2016

After three years with the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders, Rachel K. sends her farewell to her teammates, directors and the fans.

Hey Redskins Fans! 

After three amazing, unforgettable years with the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders it is time for me to hang up my poms. As I sit here and reminisce on all that I have done (games, heartwarming promos, a military appreciation tour, Redskins charitable events and much more) it brings the biggest smile to my face. I truly am sad letting go but I have many new adventures in my future that I am eager to explore. 

I first want to say thank you to my amazing coaches, Stephanie Jojokian and Jamilla Keene, the two women who have been nothing but positive influences and extraordinary role models. Coming into the NFL cheer world at a young age, they formed me into the woman I have grown to be and will continue to become. Thank you for all the opportunities and for being great mentors. I am so very thankful for all that you both do. 

My teammates, my sisters, thank you! I will forever cherish our memories. Through all the laughs and the tears I will never forget the endless support through good and bad times. Our coach was right when she said this was a sisterhood. I can say with confidence that I have gained friendships with so many of the women, both past and present WRC, that will last a lifetime. My class, Seal Team 16, thank you to this crazy bunch of fun loving, energetic, positive girls who never failed to make me smile. You are the ones that got me through it all. I am one lucky girl! 

Thank you to my friends and family. Without you the dream of being an NFL cheerleader would have been impossible to reach. Your continuous support never went unnoticed. To our amazing sideline assistants, thank you for making game day a breeze and being role models to look up to. Through hectic times they always managed to make a crazy game easy and fun for us. To the fans, you hear it all the time and I’ll say it again, you guys are the BEST fans in the entire NFL. Thank you for cheering along with us and chanting "Hail to the Redskins" for the whole DMV to hear. To the new 2016 rookie class, take in every single second and cherish all that is given to you. You will become a part of the strongest family there is and that is something I cannot accurately describe, you have to live it to feel it. You only get one rookie year, live it up! 

Once a Redskins Cheerleader, Always a Redskins Cheerleader. 

Hail To The Redskins!

Much Love,

Rachel K.
