Lily Wilson, daughter of Courtney and Jeff Wilson, is a junior at Brentwood Academy and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
She is a member of the Varsity Cheerleading Team and holds the position of backspot. She said the biggest highlight for her was cheering during the State Championship game, which BA won.
Wilson said she has been doing gymnastics and tumbling her whole life, so cheering was a natural next step. She started cheering in fourth grade and has been doing it ever since.
When asked what inspires her to continue training and competing she said, “I’m always trying to better myself.”
Her biggest role models are her mother and father, Courtney and Jeff. “… they’ve continually loved and supported me,” she said. “I hope to be like that for my children someday as well.”
Wilson describes herself as hardworking and passionate. When she’s not cheering, she enjoys cooking, shopping and spending time with friends.
After graduating from BA, she plans to attend college to become a pediatrician or psychologist.
