Legacy Elite All Stars Cheer and Tumbling cheerleader Lexie Messer was awarded a scholarship to Alderson Broaddus to continue as a part of their cheer program on Friday.
Tara Deskins Ellis, Owner and Operator of Legacy Elite All Stars Cheer and Tumbling, had nothing but praise for Messer.
“Lexie is a natural born leader,” said Ellis. “You know when she is in the room she is going to want everyone to do their job and give 100 percent. She is tough mentally and physically and is just that player every coach wants on their team. Lexie is also a teacher of the sport. She can coach and teach kids while also being an athlete at the same time. Lexie also has a huge heart and has pushed through so many trying times. She is smart, hard working and self-disciplined. She is like family to me, and I have watched her grow up and put in the work for the what’s needed to be a successful athlete.”
Alderson Broaddus is coached by Chad Haller and Joshua Wolfe. The Battlers cheer squad competes in the Nationals every year in Daytona Beach.
Messer recently graduated from Mingo Central.
