We have long considered the Allen Americans Ice Angels to be one of the pre-eminent minor league cheer squads in the entire country. Which is why we have featured them 9 times in the past. And honestly, I think we saved the best for number 10.
Brand new Ice Angel Stashia has a pretty strong history in the minor league cheer world of Texas. Before joining the Ice Angels in August, Stashia was a member of the Texas Legends squad; another one of my favorites.
But this full time fashion merchandising student at the University of North Texas doesn't show any signs of stopping here. With a long term goal of owning her own clothing boutique some day, Stashia's more immediate plans involve trying out for the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers squad now that she finally turned 21 on Sunday. Based on her rise through the Texas professional cheer ranks already, I have no doubt we'll see her in Cowboys blue and white next year.
Stashia would also like to be a role model for young girls suffering with depression and mental illness by sharing her story and her strength. That is a very important and humbling goal in life. If you can't root for somebody like Stashia, who can you root for?
You can follow Stashia's time with the Ice Angels and her quest to join the Rhythm & Blue Dancers on her Twitter or Instagram accounts.
