She's been a Calendar Girl and TV starlet, but those roles are secondary to her true calling: Charger Girl. Now entering her fourth season cheering on the home team, Stacie has been a pro cheerleader since she was 18. Last year, the Kansas native starred in three episodes of the reality TV show Making the Squad and represented the Charger Girls in Hawaii at the Pro Bowl. She recently launched a side career designing dance and cheer uniforms for the NFL, NBA and other pro cheerleading teams. The best part of her job boosting the Bolts? The 27 best friends she’s made for a lifetime. Yes, she’s that sweet. —J. Maury Harris
