Armand Fernandez-Pierre is taking the term "double-duty" quite literally. The 335-pound high school student at prep school Episcopal School of Dallas is both a defensive lineman for the football team and a member of the cheer squad
"“ often at the same during games.
While there are many cheerleaders who play two sports
, never have we seen such a case where an athlete plays two sports in the same game.
Armand loves both sports so much, the coaches were able to come up with a compromise: he plays football during the game and performs with the cheer squad during half-time. Apparently, he's such a good football player, the coach didn't mind! A few top ranking schools have even shown in interest in him for their football teams.
Armand loves the physical intensity of football but loves the encouragement and sportsmanship of cheer
We've got to say, we're quite impressed and inspired by this athlete's dedication to his passion! Check out the news video about Armand below:
