"I was like tossing girls in the air - that's where I got my strength from, just controlling girls in the air. You get core strength, your chest gets all big. It makes you really strong, like you look on steroids, but you don't have to take steroids because of cheerleading."
"Cheerleading is definitely hard on your body. That's why I decided to wrestle in college, not cheerlead."
