Eric S. Gibson - Filming a Video - Portrait
        Who is the Cheerleading Scientist
My name is Eric Gibson, and I live with my wife Kayla (Varsity State Director) and son Will in a small house that I built myself on a 70 acre farm that Iíve always dreamed of owning.
In 2003 I graduated from Marshall University in Huntington, WV, with a PH D. in college cheerleading (*joke) and a B.A. in science and computer and information technology, and promptly became a software developer. Yes, I am a real deal computer nerd. I didn't have tape in the middle of my glasses, but I wore large red ones for much too long, and that was enough to place me firmly in the middle of the stereotype. Shortly after developing the website CheerleadingStunts.Net in 2004, I began to sell t-shirts on the site.
This was the impetus for starting my own screen printing company even though I had less-than-zero knowledge of the industry. By June of 2006 I was ready to quit my full time job as a software developer for the State of West Virginiaís Auditorís Office and run my company full time. I had missed my involvement in the cheer community, but this career move allowed me to return to it: I went back to work for NCA as an instructor in that summer.
Just as it has for many of you, cheerleading has shaped my life. Sometimes it is hard to explain how you make a living to a non-cheerleader. They can't quite wrap their head around the industry and how large it has become. To this day when leaving a cheerleading event, camp, or conference, I remark that "I have to go back to real life" as I leave for the airport.
I have worn many hats in Varsity Brands since 2001 and continue to help out as often as possible. I feel at this stage in my journey I can best service this community by becoming a YouTube content creator and pass along my research to the each of you.
But of all the debts that I owe the spot of cheerleading, my best and happiest is this: through cheerleading, I met my favorite cheerleader and the love of my life, Kayla. We began as friends who shared a passion for the activity, then dated (while constantly talking about cheerleading), and finally married in 2011. Our party favors were spirit stick key chains and most of our wedding party were cheerleaders. Our vows incorporated the "my #1 Cheerleader" and to which we owe our relationship.
