In the interest of giving equal time to the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) girls of the football season, the Retro Pic of the Day zooms in on the cheerleaders of the past.
This above photo features the varsity cheerleaders of RFH in 1975-76.
Notice how the captains of the squad’s letters are RF only and they’re in white. Hmmm.
And then there were those catchy cheers with all that stomping, pom-pomming, clapping and megaphones. Aaaaaand “Hey, purple! Hey white! You look so good to meeeeee … Hey, hey, hey purple, hey white …” Who remembers one? Don’t be shy now!
Recognize these girls?
What do you miss about the role of the cheerleader in the past versus the present? What do you like better now about the cheering squads and what is now a dance team?
