Season 2 of Netflix’s original docuseries Cheer saw some conflict among the assistant coaches and cheerleaders after Monica took a temporary coaching leave. Well, now, it seems Navarro Bulldogs has a new assistant coach, Dustin Velazquez.
So, who is he? Keep reading this Dustin Velazquez Bio to learn all about him.
Meet Dustin Velazquez, Navarro Cheer Assistant Coach
Dustin Velazquez joined Navarro Bulldogs as its assistant coach in 2022. After summing up his first season onboard, head coach Monica took it to her IG on April 12, 2022, to write, “What a joy it has been to coach alongside you. Your laid-back style is the perfect balance to my over-the-top personality. Your talent is top-notch and your leadership is such a blessing.”
Likewise, Dustin also shared a few kind words about Monica over his IG on the same day. “I was a young man in search of a purpose and in search of guidance and direction. Monica Aldama single-handedly changed my life,” a line wrote.
It seems that Dustin’s history with Monica goes all the way back to 2015. At the time, Dustin was an athlete at Navarro. According to Monica, she always knew “he had a special heart and that (he) would do big things.”
And now, the two are doing those “big things” together.
Furthermore, Dustin’s relationship with Monica isn’t only that of a mentor and apprentice. “Everything she taught me in cheer transferred into my jobs, my relationships, and my marriage. She helped develop me into the person I am,” Dustin explained.
As for those of you wondering, what happened to Navarro’s former assistant coaches. Andy Cosferent and Kailee Peppers didn’t seem to be involved with Navarro Cheer during the 2021-2022 season. So, perhaps, they might have left the show.
