"Hi my name is Grace Bleil. I began cheerleading at the age of 3 with Wreck Cheerleading. This is where my passion for cheerleading began. I began training and competing with Key West Starz Allstars at 8 years old. Frank Alvarez-former Top Gun coach and Tara Lezin co-owner of Brandon Allstars developed my cheer and tumbling skills to competition championship level. Our KW Starz team was highly competitive and won numerous championships. I cheered all fours year at Key West High School. I was Captain of my junior varsity, varsity and competition squad. During those 4 years I attended numerous camps with Dana Brown-Head Coach of Florida State University Cheerleading Team. I was also a volunteer coach at the Key West junior football league for 8 years. I worked with girls ranging from the age 4 to 14. In 2015 I started working with the Key West High School competition squad. I love helping athletes develop to reach their full potential!"
