Her man currently plays for the Miami Dolphins but they have history together. James was only 5’9” and 185 pounds in his senior year at Liberty-Eylau high school in Texarkana, Texas. Yet he led his squad to a Texas 3A state title and rushed for 2,043 yards. He also scored 26 all-purpose touchdowns on his way to an all-state selection.

He was selected by the 49-ers in the second round with the 61st pick in the 2012 Draft.


Born and raised in Corvallis, the beautiful blonde belonged to one of the best cheering squad, rated as among the very best in the Nation College or pro. The former ambassadors of the University –who entertained crowds since 2007 –revealed during an interview why she said she chose to go there saying: “What was perfect about the University of Oregon was that it was close to home, but additionally far enough away which i could learn and also be by myself. I had been always trained when you desired something bad enough, to not let anything be an obstacle, so being from Corvallis wasn’t likely to stop me within my imagine just as one Or Cheerleader!”
