“CHEERING ON THE RAIDERS” WITH CAYDEN HOOD
The only current member of the Richmond cheerleading team who has been a four-year varsity member, Hood has been an instrumental part in keeping the crowd entertained during football season.
Known for her charisma, Hood brings energy and leadership to the sidelines to both her teammates and those rooting for the Raiders. As a flyer, Hood performs stunts in the air during games, while also leading cheers.
A unique experience for Hood is that she gets to cheer alongside her younger sister Kylie, a sophomore and two-year varsity cheerleader. Both Hood sisters cheer for their mom, head coach Meredith Hood.
