LET THE ENERGY
For Eagles Cheerleader Krystal, the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is personal.
The Texas native will always cherish her home roots, but the City of
Brotherly Love is where her big dreams of being an Eagles Cheerleader
“My uncle Alex has always been an Eagles fan and my dad Edward
was a Cowboys fan, so it was a divided house,” Krystal says. “When
we would go to family barbecues, there was a lot of arguing about
who had the best team. My dad has since converted to an Eagles
fan. He is so excited that I have the opportunity to be a part of
the Eagles organization. He has never missed watching an Eagles
game since I joined the squad!”
Her passion for Philadelphia has
grown since she arrived from her
small hometown of Pharr, Texas.
“I was in awe when I moved to
this city – the skyline, historical
attractions, and diverse population
are some of the aspects that make
it so unique. It’s very different from
my small-town upbringing.”
When Krystal has the chance to go back
home, she serves as an inspiration for
others who want to pursue their wildest dreams.
Krystal adds, “My family realized the courage I had to
leave everything that I was familiar with to pursue my dreams, and they
are very proud of me.”
AFTER MAKING THE SQUAD IN 2018, KRYSTAL ENJOYED EXPLORING HER NEW CITY. SHE
CONVERTED HER DAD, EDWARD, FROM A COWBOYS FAN INTO AN EAGLES FAN.
