Michelle Morris is an accountant.On the side, she’s a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader.

Morris started with the team her senior year of college, and now shes heading into her forth season cheering for the Eagles. And this year she’s a co-captain.

Twice a week, Morris drives 60 miles from New Jersey to Philly, after her day job, and practices with her fellow cheerleaders for at least three hours.

Sundays are the fun part. The Eagles monopolize Morris’ Sunday as she gets her hair and make-up done, and cheers her team to victory.

But it doesn’t end there. Morris and her fellow cheerleaders are constantly making appearances at charity events, going to NFL off-season events like the draft, and even jetting off to the Bahamas for photo shoots.

Michelle starts her day off at Withum, Smith + Brown, at around 8 am where she is an accountant

Then it's to work. Michelle leaves early on practice days, so she has to get all her work done by 4:30

She even shows her Eagles pride at work

Working hard! Michelle was recently promoted and now does a lot of work with the bankruptcy and insolvency niche at the firm

Now it's in the car for Michelle's hour and a half drive to Philly. She has to make it in time for 7:00 rehearsal

Michelle is pulled out of the crowd. She's the only one who is doing one of the moves perfectly

As the girls practice, you notice the guys working out in the gym gravitate towards the stretching area right outside...

At about 10:20 pm, practice was over. Michelle took off and made it home by midnight and got ready to do the same thing again the next day!

But it's not only during the football season that Michelle participates in Eagles events. This year she got to go to the NFL draft

Here's Michelle and fellow PECs on stage at the draft
