Cheer Team

The George Fox University cheer team members are ambassadors of Bruin Athletics, and represent the vision, mission and values of the program. You can see them in action as they entertain fans at football games at Stoffer Family Stadium and basketball games at Miller Gymnasium, in addition to interacting with our fans at community events.

The cheer team is available to the local community and businesses for paid appearances along with the George Fox mascot, Pennington.

The team practices twice a week and holds tryouts in the spring of each year. For more information, contact Sports Marketing (
