The Oakland Raiders are proud to feature Amanda as the Raiderette of the Game for Week 9 of the 2010 regular season.
From the small town of Lodi, Amanda has no problem mixing in with the intensity, competitiveness and electrically-charged atmosphere of NFL cheerleading. As a dancer of 15 years, she has held captain positions on her high school cheerleading squad and her arena football dance team.
Amanda will graduate in the fall from Sacramento State University with a major in Criminal Justice and a concentration in Pre-Law. Amanda is a member of Alpha Phi Sorority, which is involved with volunteer work for the American Heart Association.
She currently interns in a law firm, which is a great start to her desired career as a district attorney.
Before cheering as a Raiderette, she shared her dance knowledge as an instructor for a high school dance team.
Amanda is in her second season as a Raiderette and hopes to continue cheering with the Silver and Black as long as she can.
"The Raider organization is so positive with all of the community work; it's great to be a part of. I had an amazing experience working with these women and have been blessed," Amanda said. "It's a dream come true, I could not wait to come back. It's very rewarding and great to give back to the community and be a role model to young girls."
