JaNaya Hall, 12, rallies the crowd with the Rainier Ravens Cheer Squad during the South King County Junior Football League playoffs at Foster High School in Tukwila Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013. Hall, who was born with cerebral palsy, has cheered on the team with her older sister for the last five years. "It makes me feel special," she said. "It keeps me active." Coach TiQuida Spellman said Hall "gets down" on her "Go Fight Win Tonight" cheer. "For me it's what you put behind it- the passion," said Spellman. The South King County Junior Football League, started in 1952, offers football and cheer leading for youth ages five to 14. The championships will be held next weekend. "It's made a difference in her life," said mother LaMaya Hall.
