Introducing Mr. Out of Bounds 2009!

In case you missed it, the team has acquired another accolade! Send a spirited congratulations to Nicholas F., Brian W. and Diego T. for representing Cheer New York on March 9th at the First Annual "Mr. Out of Bounds" contest.

Nicholas F. utilized his awesome costuming skills to attach a cheerific rhinestone "CNY" and star to his red and white tighties. He also showed a wilder side, many of us had not seen, and showed us just what pom poms are for!

Brian W. had the crowd hooting and hollering with his physique and especially when he showed them his All-American (red-white-and-blue) airbrushed graffiti "CNY" art on the backside of his briefs.

And Diego T., in his blue and white aussieBum briefs—strutted around the stage with his big Cheer NY megaphone. Faced with the question, "What would you do with the great power and responsibility of Mr. Out of Bounds?" Diego T. secured his 1st-place spot by answering, "I'd convince everyone to volunteer for The Trevor Project."

The Trevor Project was the focus of the evening. It is a great charity that operates the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Fundraising efforts were a huge success, based on the overwhelming turnout—as the place was a crowded scene full of jocks and sports enthusiasts. Thanks to everyone who came to help Out of Bounds fundraise and support The Trevor Project!

When the judges made their decision, Brian W. took home the “Most Out of Bounds Spirit Award,” and “Second Runner Up,” and Diego T. took the coveted title of “Mr. Out of Bounds 2009!” We'll have to remind Diego T. that it's not safe to stunt wearing a sash or tiara!

All Cheer NY contestants made a huge impression and represented the team proudly. Everyone in that room thought, "That's a group I want to be a part of!" Congratulations Cheer New York!
