Taylor Young doesn’t get what all the fuss is about. Neither does her dad.
Young, the Michigan State cheerleader who fell from the shoulders of a fellow cheerleader during a routine and landed on her face during Wednesday’s Florida State game, tried to tell people she was OK moments after. She flashed the “thumbs up” sign as paramedics carted her off the court and is expected to make a full recovery.
“She was really disoriented at first, but she’s back to her normal self,” her mother Joanne Young told The Muskegon Chronicle.
“She doesn’t get what all the hoopla is about. For Taylor, she doesn’t see it as a huge deal. She’s been a competitive cheerleader since high school and you hope that nothing like this ever happens. It was a freak thing.”
Her dad, Charles Young, chimed in Thursday morning on Facebook with his own comment:
“I’m glad to see your booty isn’t getting’ big … no one likes a chick with a big butt … love you.”
