November 5, 2012
APPLETON, Wis. – Wisconsin Lutheran College cheerleading coach Jody Brill was inducted into the inaugural Wisconsin Association of Cheer/Pom Coaches Hall of Fame class Saturday, October 27. The Warriors cheer coach was one of five members to be inducted.
Brill, who started the WLC cheerleading program, has coached cheer for 29 years, 16 at New Berlin Eisenhower High School and the last 13 as head coach of the Warriors. During Brill’s 16 seasons at Eisenhower, her squads won five state championships (1993-1994, 1997-1999) and finished runner-up six different occasions.
Brill followed those 16 seasons at New Berlin Eisenhower by starting the cheerleading program for Wisconsin Lutheran College football. For the past 13 years, she has coached the Warriors cheer program, which performs at all Warriors home football games and select away games.
Brill was a member of the first class of district representatives for WACPC. In representing district four, her goals were to help the sport of cheerleading gain recognition, provide a quality state competition, educate coaches about safety, and gain the WIAA’s endorsement. In addition to WACPC, she has been an AACCA safety certifier for over 20 years as well as a UCA trainer and advisor. Brill served a two-year board seat on the National Federation High School spirit committee. She also coordinates the Milwaukee Bucks' cheer and dance competitions.
In addition to her current cheerleading duties with WLC, Brill continues to work as a special education paraprofessional at New Berlin Eisenhower, a position she had held for 32 years.
The other four members who were inducted into the inaugural hall of fame class were Jan Daggett, Don Larsen, Sue Poeschl, and Deb Weitzel.
