Here is a photo gallery of Kate in action, and here is SI.com's Cheerleader of the Week archive.
I love my school, but I almost went to: There was no other choice! I applied to one other school (TCU) during a free-application time, but I knew all throughout high school that I wanted to come to UT and be on Texas Pom.
My best physical feature is: My hair. It is one of those versatile heads of hair that can be curly, straight or have big curls that can be easily teased to make the big Texas hair that we all love so much.
If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. I think that Kate Hudson is one of the cutest actresses and is so funny!
If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Rap and R&B. Being on Texas Pom involves a lot of hip-hop and I am always looking for new and interesting beats to dance to.
My worst habit is: Finishing other people's sentences. I know that it is so annoying for the person I am talking to.
My gameday superstitions are: Drinking a diet coke at the stadium before the game. I know athletes aren't supposed to drink soda before being active, but it always hypes me up!
I'd love to trade places for a day with: Kristen Chenowith. She is my favorite Broadway actress and has an amazing voice. She is also so adorable!
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Golfing. It is one of those recreational sports that I would be able to carry with me throughout my entire life.
These three things top my bucket list: 1) Be on Broadway; 2) Go to London 3); Be diligent enough to run a marathon.
I'd want my last meal to be: Steak and baked potato. I'm a "red meat and carbs" kinda girl.
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: We rotate sides throughout the game, and one time, as we were running to our next spot, I jumped up to give someone a high five. As I was coming down to land, I lost my footing and fell flat on my face!
Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My Bible, a photo album of my loved ones and some sunscreen. I hate being sunburned!
My favorite sport and professional sports teams are: Obviously my favorite sports team is the Texas Longhorns, but my favorite professional sports team is the Dallas Cowboys.
My one guilty pleasure is: Diet Coke. That is the one unhealthy thing I could never give up.
My celebrity crush is: Channing Tatum. He can dance, play basketball, play soccer, act and is very, very attractive.
Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Hilary Rodham Clinton, Oprah, Maya Angelou, Susan B. Anthony and Amelia Earhart. I was raised to be an independent woman who can make a difference. They all made history by proving that women can do anything they set their minds to.
My friends would be surprised to know that I: Was a band nerd. I played the trumpet from sixth grade through 12th grade.
The next risk I want to take is: Getting a job! Starting any next chapter is a risk considering it is out of our comfort zones.
The reality show I'd do best on is: The Amazing Race.
The worst date I've ever been on was: When the guy I was out with thought it was a date and I didn't... I must have been so rude the whole time because I acted like we were just hanging out as friends! I didn't realize he had asked me out and that we were on a date!
