“I enjoy being apart of an organization that is passionate to provide sporting opportunities to our youth community.  I believe sports provide valuable life lessons that can’t be taught within a classroom.  Growing up I always had a sense of respect and honor for my coaches.  Now I hope I can reflect those values on our youth by helping them become leaders, teammates and understand that success is developed from hard work!”

Colie and her husband Shane decided to get involved with The Taylor Mill Eagles because of the love that they and their children have for sports. They have 8 kids and 4 grandkids, and when they aren’t participating in sports, they love to go boating, go to concerts, and travel.  While serving as VP for The Taylor Mill Eagles, she hopes to be a valuable asset for everyone involved.

My name is Jennifer Stephenson and I am the new Cheer Director for the 2020 season. I am so excited to work with the youth in Taylor Mill and develop their cheer skills with the hopes of preparing them for middle and  high school cheerleading! I have been a part of the Taylor Mill Organization since it’s very first year where I started as a football mom. In the last 10 years, I’ve only spent 2 years away from the organization and since I missed it so much, I came back!
Cheer is embedded in my background from youth through high school! I have over 10 years of coaching experience at varying ages. I have coached the Spirit Squad (3-4 year olds) all the way up to Seniors in High School. I look forward to sharing my knowledge throughout the season to better prepare your children for their cheer futures! Cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you! Go EAGLES!”
