Go Patriots!

Put your pom-poms together for borough daughter Allison DeJesus. Following a gruelling six-week audition process that began with open try-outs and concluded with the annual Patriots Cheerleaders Boot Camp, Allison was selected as one of the 2017 New England Patriots Cheerleaders.

The squad shakes its pom-poms and rehearses twice a week and performs at all Patriots home games. Patriots cheerleaders have also visited deployed military troops in more than 25 countries, supported many charitable organizations and local business, and appeared on local and national television.

Allison learned her craft as a student at Burncoat Senior High School in Massachusetts, then earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education with a minor in theater at Worcester State University. Allison has also been with the Pat’s organization for the past three years.

“I am filled with an overwhelming sense of pride and emotion to be able to continue working alongside an incredible organization that is passionate about volunteerism and their fan base,” she said. “After being a part of the historic 2016 Super Bowl win, I can’t wait to kick off the 2017 season with my teammates and the best fans in football.”

Standing O says, “Allison, if you ever get tired of the cold New England winters, there are a few New York teams that could use a cheerleader or two.”
