Emily Pickering now at front of Mustangs cheer

By Neil H. Devlin
Mullen Sports Information Specialist

Emily Pickering has taken over Mullen cheer.

“I’m really excited,” she said. “Actually, it’s an honor to be interviewed. I’m super-excited be a part of the program and to try and take it to the next level, like it used to be.”

Most recently at Jefferson County’s Standley Lake, where she was in command from 2012-16, Pickering also served as an assistant with the Gators. A co-ed team member at Barton County College in Great Bend, Kan., Pickering also was Level 5 with the Alpine All-Stars of Parker. A cheer member at Grandview in Aurora from 2004-07, Pickering’s injuries ultimately halted her participation.

“I blew out a knee,” Pickering said. “It wasn’t very fun.”

Severe ligament damage was the problem that also interrupted her college stay. She will be attending Metropolitan State in search of a degree in sports management. Her dream is to be involved with an NFL team and help make decisions such as choosing players in the draft, but maintains a passion to be involved with cheer and mentor young females at Mullen.

 “They were always one of the teams to beat (in competition) and they have a great program and the expectations that they hold really attract me,” she said.

Plus, she added, Mullen’s appeal is real and its allure has taken hold for her. She said she’d like to stay with the Mustangs indefinitely.

“Long term?  Absolutely,” she said. “I was looking for a program I can grow with and be with for the long haul.

“And I’ve never felt so welcome and so supported so quickly.”
