The first American Football college game, witnessed the birth of cheerleading in 1869, between Princeton University and host school Rutgers University, with 6 Princeton male 'cheerleaders'. By the 1880s, Princeton’s students formed an all-male student “pep club” to lead “cheers” (unified chants and yells) in order to provide support to their team, as well as create a high energy sport environment. Cheers such as “Rah, Rah, Ray! Tiger, Tiger, Sis, Sis, Sis! Boom, Boom, Boom! Aaaaah! Princeton, Princeton, Princeton!” were commonly yelled from the seats of Princeton University’s American Football stadium as a method to motivate their team on to victory. /nIn 1884, one of Princeton University’s graduated students, Thomas Peebles, moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA (North Central USA), and introduced the Princeton “pep club” and “cheer” concept to the students of the University of Minnesota with great success at their American football games. /nTHIS VIDEO: This is my informative speech on the history of cheerleading./nBrittni Taylor
