USAF Lieutenant Prepares for Super Bowl Debut


First Lt. Alicia Quaco is a 2010 graduate of the Air Force Academy who's stationed in Seattle and works to manage aircraft production for the USAF.

She's also making her Super Bowl debut this Sunday as a member of the Seattle Seahawks' Sea Gals cheerleading squad when her team takes on the Denver Broncos.


Quaco, who was also a cheerleader growing up, joined the organization this season. Since the first round of Sea Gals tryouts are shown live on Seattle television, she first had to get permission from her Air Force command to audition for the squad.

She thinks cheerleading and serving in the military have something in common. "We do have to stay in line while we are cheerleading and do a lot of the same things as the person next to you - much like you do in the military. They do complement each other."
