Moore’s Madison Davidson – Character Counts sponsored by Eskridge Honda


Written by Kelsey Baucom

Moore senior Madison Davidson has been a cheerleader for three years. Plenty of other sports have held her attention, but once she gave cheerleading a shot, she fell in love.

“I played softball for 12 years, a huge bulk of my life, as well as soccer, tennis, and gymnastics. I had originally tried cheer because I wanted something new, and something that would challenge me. I fell in love with the sport and the people who came with it!” said Davidson.

“I have gained so many friendships and close bonds through this team. My teammates mean so much to me, and I have no clue where I’d be without them. I wouldn’t have tried out if it wasn’t for my dear friend Adie, and I think her every day for it.”

In addition to cheerleading, Davidson is also in the Jungle and the Rufnex, which are spirit groups for Moore. The rest of the cheer team also very recently started coaching a group of cheerleaders from the special needs program at Moore, which Davidson said she was very excited to be a part of.

Davidson said that her favorite thing about her high school is that, “no matter how different everyone may be, when and if you need anyone, the whole school is there to back you up and take care of you.”

This mentality is something that Davidson remembers as she strives to fulfill her role as captain of the JV team. It is part of what motivates her to be a good leader.

“I know how hard high school can be, and how cruel others are at times, she said. “My main goal is just to be there for all of the girls – Varsity and JV – and be someone they can talk to, because I know what it’s like to feel like no one cares for you, and I don’t want any of them to ever feel that way.”

Davidson also cites her cheer coach James and sponsor Mrs. Jordan as people who have been influences in her life, in and outside of cheer.

After high school Davidson plans to attend OCCC for her basics and then transfer to OU to major in sports journalism.
