Meet Susie, The Grandmother Who Is Also a Cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders
From the Raiders' Website:
Her dream has always been to be a part of Football’s Fabulous Females. Susie auditioned four times before making the team this year. When her number was called, she was amazed and overwhelmed. It meant a lot to her personally to continually try for something and ultimately achieve it.
The rookie has been on the Raiders field before, watching her daughter participate in High School Spirit Explosion in 2009. However, her first time stepping on the field as a Raiderette will be the culmination of her self-determination and never giving up on her childhood dream.
Susie worked in the corporate world for 11 years before opening her own dance studio for four years. She currently works as a sales assistant at a news station in Salinas.
In her free time, Susie spends time with her husband and three children and her granddaughter, born in January 2011.
