Introducing our 2021 Cheer Coaches!!
Coach Morgan Libby
I will be a first year coach for the JV Varsity squad this fall. My love for cheerleading started at a very young age and being a coach has always been something that I've wanted to do. I began doing youth cheer at 4 years old and later moved to do All Star cheerleading for a number of years. Finally I cheered for Rochester High School and was lucky enough to win two state championships. I am a recent graduate from Central Michigan University and I currently live in Rochester hills. I currently work as a recruiter in Troy, MI and I am very excited to take on this role and be part of the RFC family.
Coach Sam Ellison
This will be my first year coaching for the JV Varsity Rochester Football and Cheer. Cheerleading has always been one of my passions. I started training as a gymnast for 12 years and then became a Rochester Varsity cheerleader when I got to high school, where we won two state championships. I recently graduated from Michigan State University with a marketing degree and currently work as a business and medical supply sales representative for Donn Palms. I am eager to take on this role as the 2021 RFC Cheer coach!
