Coach DeMarco demonstrates a backflip to a member of the Cheer team.

The new cheer coach, Mr. Vincent DeMarco, is not only new to Heritage, but he is also new to Colorado.

DeMarco says that the hardest thing is getting used to Denver. He came from Alabama, where cheerleading is a little bit bigger than it is in Colorado, but he is ready to take on the challenge. This year’s focus is on game cheering rather than competition.

“The cheers will focus on supporting the other teams first,” says DeMarco.

DeMarco’s favorite part about coaching is the structure and the challenge to always get better. The goal is to always be improving.

Highlights for the cheers this year include competing, succeeding, having a new coach and cheering at football games.

“I’m looking forward to the new coach because of the new style,” says Lucy Passaglia ’16.

The girls like that DeMarco is very enthusiastic about cheerleading; he has a passion for it. He sticks to his word and is more organized. When he came to coach he knew exactly what he wanted to do and he stood by his plan despite other opinions .

“He is more involved and more experienced,” states Enya Testard ’15.
