football games, but Fox 17 reporter Eric Alvarez bring you the story of
some truly inspiring unsung heroes.
Long before the Friday
night lights fired up, and hours before the first play was called,
Wilson Central students were already hard at work preparing for the big
game against Beech.
These are the kids that won't get the glory
of putting it in the end zone, but still have plenty of pride. Perhaps
no student has more of it than 19-year-old cheerleader Gabryelle
Conklin, who doesn't let cerebral palsy keep her from energizing the
fans or inspiring her fellow cheerleaders.
"I just like the
support of my girls," Conklin said. "They mean the world to me and I
don't even know if they know how much they mean to me."
Cheerleading Coach Stacy Jones talks about what Gabby helps the girls bring to the field every week.
