My name is Keeley Linnell and I am the 9th grade football and basketball cheerleading coach for the 2022-2023 season! This is my 2nd year teaching and coaching at Collins Hill High School. Starting at 8 years old I competed for Premier Athletics Allstars and Ace Allstars competing in the NCA Championships in Dallas, TX. My school squad cheerleading started in 7th grade and my high school team was state runner up twice and received bids to the UCA Nationals in Disney World. I am excited to continue my cheerleading career as an Eagle at Collins Hill!
