Tucker shared with us what his future holds with Team USA.
I am currently training for the US National Team Cheer tryouts for the 2017 team. This will be my fifth time trying out for the team and hopefully to make the team and represent our country at the ICU Worlds. Being a part of the U.S. national team is the highlight of my cheerleading career!
