Hedgesville High School cheerleader Amanda Cummings couldn't cheer for her school's basketball team in its sectional tournament game against Martinsburg High School Friday night. While the game was being played, Amanda, 16, was having surgery to remove a large blood clot that resulted from a freak accident at the team's Wednesday night game against Jefferson High School. But Amanda - whose head stuck a wall and the floor after a Hedgesville player went out of bounds after a loose ball and ran into her - was with the team in spirit, her father said during a telephone interview Saturday.

It's not about the money. As an NFL cheerleader, she averages about $75 for each home game. It's not about boredom. With a degree in marketing, she owns her own business, is married and involved in the community. She doesn't need to stand on the sidelines of a football field, energizing the crowd. But she does — her face often featured on the stadium JumboTron after a team touchdown or a crushing sack, smiling with unshakable positivity. She does it because she's a people person.
