- Warning: This article contains spoilers from Cheer season 2.
During the first season of Cheer, the Navarro cheerleading team detailed its struggle to win a national championship. Unexpected injuries, difficult routines, and the challenge of balancing academics with athletics were just a few of the many obstacles that impeded the team’s success.
For the second season of the show (which dropped on January 12), Cheer not only documents Navarro’s preparation for its Daytona competition, but introduces Trinity Valley Community College and their own challenges in the months before the two schools go head to head.

Throughout the season, Wooten refers to a number of mental blocks she’s experienced over the years. Wooten claims that she experienced “mental blocks” during her time as a flyer and tumbler, much like Simone Biles’ well-publicized “twisties”. In early 2019, she spent months recovering from a fall prior to joining the TVCC team, according to her Instagram. She credited her coach Vontae Johnson for helping her “trust the process” and move past the injury.
By the end of the season, Wooten seems to gain even more confidence, advise her new teammates, and eventually help Trinity Valley secure the win at Daytona. Afterwards, she
