Top 7 Texas College Cheer Teams

These Schools are the Best of the Best in Texas!

Top 7 Texas College Cheer Teams
Trinity Valley, Daytona Beach FL

I based this list on the following things:


How the team places at events like NCA or UCA nationals

Scholarship opportunities

What you can get paid for just by doing what you love-cheer.

Game day

One of the coolest thing about cheering in college or a big university is being down on the sidelines cheering on your team! Things like how your football team does each year was something to take into consideration (how many games they win, how many championships they've won, how far into the playoffs they go, etc) and of course the atmosphere on game days!

Texas has some of the best cheer teams in the game right now. Texas cheer teams always place well at cheer nationals and these seven teams are the best of the best!

7. Stephen F. Austin

SFA has a small and large coed cheerleading squad as well as an all girl team. Their all girl team won a title in 2016 with an awesome routine! They then ended up dropping to intermediate the next year and although they did dominate their intermediate division and ended up with a win in 2017, it was an intermediate team. Their Large coed is competitive in their division every year and tied for 3rd place at the 2017 NCA nationals. Their small coed finished in 2nd place. As a program they have won numerous titles throughout the years!

6. University of Texas at Arlington

UTA has an extremely talented team every year and has won their division four times in a row. They are the current reigning champs in Small Coed I Division.

5. Blinn College

Blinn College has won four back to back titles in the Small Coed II Division. They also got the highest score out of all small coed teams in 2016. They are fiercely competitive and have a close knit family type atmosphere. Blinn college also offers a wide range of scholarships for its cheerleaders! They are the reigning champs in the Small Coed II division.

4. Trinity Valley Community College

Trinity Valley has 11 national title wins and has won back to back titles in 2016 and 17 winning grand champion over the whole competition in 2016. They are the current reigning champs of the junior college division and always put on an amazing routine!

3. Navarro College

This two year junior college is no doubt one of the best cheer squads in the nation. Their last win was in 2015 but with 12 titles under their belt (seven of them in a row) and four Grand Champion wins, Navarro could be back on top anytime now.

2. Sam Houston State University

Sam Houston State is a great place to cheer at! Game day at Bowers stadium is something to experience! The rivalry between SHSU and SFA runs deep and the Battle of the Piney Woods game is something cheerleaders on both teams look forward to every year! Sam Houston has won the battle 54 times and SFA has won it 35.

SHSU is home of 2014 All-Girl national champions as well as 2017 group stunt champions. Sam Houston's coed team is also a top contender every year and won back to back titles in 2015 and 2016 as well as took home the UCA partners stunt trophy in 2015. Sam Houston also offers great scholarships opportunities to coed members only.

1. Texas Tech University

Texas Tech made #1 on this list, with not only an awesome game day experience that is enough to draw cheerleaders in; Texas Tech blew everyone away with their performance this past year on the bandshell winning their first NCA national title as well as receiving Grand Champion! Texas Tech has been an up and coming team for the past few years and has always done well at NCA nationals but had never won. They finally did what no team before them was able to do and even competitors were excited to see them receive their first NCA win!

All of the teams listed above any cheerleader would be lucky to cheer at! They are all exceptional cheer programs that have won the NCA college cheer competition!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
