Potter watched as a lot of people tried out to get a spot on the team.

Potter was excited about her new role stating, "I've been here for years, I was here as a cheerleader, and I'm so excited to be back to get to share how amazing my experience was and pass it on to future teams that come through here and all the cheerleaders."
