Memphis, Tenn., (May 30, 2019) – USA Cheer, the National governing body for cheer, has announced the 2019 College STUNT All Americans.

The STUNT All Americans were selected by the STUNT coaches. Nominees for All American are athletes who exhibited superior skills and techniques, good game sense and knowledge of STUNT. They also needed to have participated in all four quarters of play, showing their versatility in partner stunts, jumps and tumbling, pyramids and tosses, and team routine.

“Our STUNT All Americans exhibit such amazing athleticism,” says Lauri Harris, Executive Director of USA Cheer. “They were vital to the success of their teams and are such great representatives of our sport. As we add more STUNT programs at the high school, youth, and club level, they serve to inspire young women across the US to the possibilities they have at the collegiate level.”

STUNT, the new varsity sport derived from cheerleading launched by USA Cheer, has just completed its ninth college season and eighth high school season. With more than 80 colleges having already participated over the past nine seasons, and high schools from over 12 states already on board, STUNT is the fastest growing girls sport in the country. Developed to meet the requirements of a sport under Title IX, girls STUNT takes the athletic skills of cheerleading and creates a full game format that challenges teams in head-to-head competition.

“STUNT has consistently grown and developed over the last nine seasons into an amazing sport,” says Bill Boggs, Director of College STUNT. “We are excited  to be able to offer increased opportunities for female athletes. We look forward to sharing our sport with the new teams joining us for the 2020 season.”
