Here is a photo gallery of Amanda in action, and here is's Cheerleader of the Week archive.

I love my school, but I almost went to: The only other school I visited was Baylor, but after I visited SMU, I knew there was no other school for me. I felt at home on the SMU campus.

My best physical feature is: I've never really thought about this before but I guess I would have to say my eyes.

If I had to watch one movie on loop forever, it would be: My favorite movies are dance movies, so if I had to watch one forever it would be Step Up, Center Stage or Fame.

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: I listen to a lot of country, rap and pop music. Country music is my all time favorite though, mostly because I play the fiddle in a country band.

The shows I DVR/TiVo are: I don't have a TiVo but if I did I would most likely record So You Think You Can Dance, CSI, CSI: Miami, Law and Order, Law and Order: CI and Law and Order: SVU. I'm just a little obsessed with law and crime shows!

My favorite Web Sites are: I love, and the SMU website. I love to watch dance routines and music videos on YouTube and I like to see the other Cheerleaders of the Week on I also love the SMU website because I can always check up on the athletic teams and see what is happening on campus.

My favorite people to follow on Twitter are: I don't have Twitter but if I did, I would most likely follow Coach Jones and Coach Doherty. They are my two favorite coaches at SMU, besides the spirit coaches!

My worst habit is: I tend to twirl my hair, play with my jewelry and talk a lot when I get nervous.

My game day superstitions are: I text my really good friends on the team saying good luck before the game, but my Mom has a more interesting superstition -- she has to have a Mustang tattoo on her face. Every time she puts one on the Mustangs win!! I am the only person she will let put the pony on her face, so it's extra special to me.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: I love to sing, but I wish I had a higher range like I used to when I was in high school and in middle school.

These three things top my bucket list: I want to be able to provide for and take care of my family one day, I want to go to a bowl game again my senior year/have another winning season with SMU Football, and I would love to have my own law firm. One thing that used to top my bucket list was to meet Coach June Jones and to get a picture with him in one of my SMU Pom uniforms. This is no longer on there because I met him while taking my pictures for this! I could barely breathe I was so excited!

I'd want my last meal to be: Either Mexican food or something my mom made.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: I think I fell down during one of my first football games my freshman year, but the most embarrassing thing happened during a halftime routine at a football game my sophomore year. I completely forgot the choreography and just stood there at one point. Good thing I wasn't in the front!

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: I would take a picture of my family, a blanket/towel and a lighter for fires.

My favorite pro sports teams are: My favorite teams are the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts. I think Randy Moss, Peyton Manning and Thomas Morstead are amazing!!

My one guilty pleasure is: I love chocolate!!

My celebrity crush is: Oh my, Justin Timberlake wins hands down! What I would give to be one of his dancers!

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: I would love to have dinner with my Nana, Nanny, George Bush, Rudy Giuliani and Coach June Jones. My Nanny probably wouldn't get along with any of these people for lots of reasons, but she always had a way of making me laugh, so I think it would be extremely entertaining.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: My friends are shocked when they hear that I love to go deer hunting, fishing and that I love to tap dance! Some of them are surprised to hear that I have played the fiddle since I was seven, but once they get to know me, all of it makes sense.

The next risk I want to take is: I want to try out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and go to Law School.

The worst date I've ever been on was: I have to say that I've never been on a bad date! I hope it stays that way!
