The Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders are conducting an online contest for fans to pick a local girl to receive the opportunity to audition to join the squad. Basically, it’s a very nice way of saying, “Hi there, everyone thinks you’re great and now we get to decide that on our own, now go away everyone else.” It’s truly the democratic process at its finest. And while there are 68 girls on the online voting ballot, the buzz around this contest has been created mostly for just one 20-year old Colts fan.
Tella Toney is a lunch lady at Southridge High School, and while it sounds incredibly odd, she’s currently the favorite to win the Colts cheerleader audition, thanks to a ton of support from her friends, family and all of the students at her school. Admittedly, it’s a little strange writing about a 20-year female working at a high school and not including a mugshot.
