Our 2023 Cheerleaders

2024 Cheer Staff

Cheer Coordinator/ Cadets Coach: Jessica Horwatt

Hello! This is my 2nd year as the Cheer Coordinator for the Lower Burrell Flyers Organization, and I could not be more excited. I am also a coach for the Cadet cheer team. I have been married to my husband Kevin for 10 years and we have 2 daughters, Rylee and Taylinn, who are both cheerleaders!  I have been part of the Flyers' organization for many years. My younger brother played from age 5 all the way through to his last year as a Flyer. In addition to that, my husband was also a football coach and my dad was on the board. It feels that I have come full circle now that I have a chance to coach and be part of the board now.  In addition to my time at Flyers as a cheer coach, I am also a competitive gymnastics coach for my oldest daughter’s gymnastics team. I am the co-president of the Stewart Elementary School PTA, and I work full time for Giant Eagle’s corporate office as a Gift Card Coordinator. In my free time, I am a photographer and have a passion for photography so you will see me capturing all kinds of pictures of both our cheerleaders and our football players. I am looking forward to another great season!

Cheer Co-Coordinator/ Recruits Head Coach: Jennifer Yarussi

Hello! I am this year’s Co-Cheer Coordinator with my sister (Jessica) and head coach of the Recruit Cheerleaders! My husband and I have a son and a daughter, both of which will be Recruits this year! I have been part of the Flyers' organization for many years. I watched my brother play from the age of 5 all the way through till his last year as a Flyer, and my dad was on the board for many years. This will be my 4th year here with my kids. In addition to my time at Flyers as a cheer coach, I work full time for Giant Eagle Corporate office as a Supervisor in the Customer Care department. I am also president of Bon Air PTA and enjoy doing things with the kids. Throughout the season you will find me with the cheerleaders cheering on the boys! I look forward to all the great things we will do as an organization in 2024!
