And that they are.  Under the direction of Monica Aldama, her squads have won 14 NCA National Cheerleading Championships and five Grand National Cheerleading Championships since 2000, making them one of the best cheerleading squads in the country.

Because they're so good, the team is being featured in a six part Netflix series called 'Cheer'. The series highlights just how much hard work, sacrifice and perseverance goes into being an award winning team. The series follows the team as they practice to compete in the National Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida, where they have more fans than they do in Corsicana.

The producers of the Netflix series 'Last Chance U' are behind the project. Check out all six episodes on Netflix.
