Chelsey Mark- All Star Director
“I started cheerleading and gymnastics when I was 5 years old. When I started high school I focused solely on cheer and continued through college. Cheering at Florida State is one of my biggest accomplishments and I made so many amazing memories. My favorite memory is cheering on FSU during the National Championship win in 2014!”
My biggest passion and goal going into this new role is to teach and help athletes of all stages in their cheer careers reach their individual and team goals. I also plan to teach the athletes all of the lifelong lessons, discipline, and perseverance I've learned through out my time cheerleading.  I am so excited to begin this journey with the Zone Family!!

Jacob Mark- All Star Coach
 
I was born in Richmond, Virginia and raised in Lake Worth, Florida. I've played a few different competitive sports throughout my life, including football and wrestling. I got involved in competitive cheerleading my senior year of high school. During my first cheerleading practice I was in awe of the two Florida State guys that were there to help out. After that day I was addicted and worked as hard as I could to make the FSU Co-Ed team. I cheered at FSU from 2010-2014. Our coed team cheered for football, basketball, and volleyball. I was lucky enough to also be voted captain by my peers during my final two years on the team. One of my favorite memories from FSU was cheering on the winning Seminoles during the 2013 National Championship game in Pasadena, CA. I graduated in May of 2015 with a double major in Political Science and International Affairs. I currently work for Kloeckner Metals, a metal service center, as a Processing/Sales Assistant.
