“I am extremely excited about the Hunnies Cheerleaders teaming up with the Fayetteville Marksmen. The Marksmen organization is one of the most community oriented organizations around, and it is an honor to be a part of that. Fayetteville is also home to many of our cheerleaders this season,” said Cox “The Marksmen Hunnies will bring a ton of game day excitement – we are high energy and fun personalities that come from very diverse dance and cheer backgrounds.

“I want to create an experience for fans who can come to a game and laugh, dance, get on the big screen, and have a memorable night, something they’re still talking about at work or school on Monday. With everything we’ve done preparing for this season’s promotions and entertainment, we’re crafting an experience that people won’t forget,” said Reighard “The Marksmen Hunnies fit right into that vision, by getting fans engaged and up on their feet cheering. They’ll bring the energy for game day, and be a huge part of our community outreach.”
