More about Coach Rode

Contact Coach Rode by email at to learn more about Bluffton’s cheerleading and/or cheer/STUNT teams.



Bluffton is joining a select number of schools offering competitive Cheer/STUNT. STUNT showcases the athleticism of cheerleading thought stunting, jumping, and tumbling in a head-to-head game format at regional matches in the spring semester.

Incoming first-year, transfer students and current Bluffton students are encouraged to submit a video tryout for a spot on our STUNT team to Coach Morgann as soon as possible. There are a few spots open on the football and basketball sideline cheerleading squads, as well.

New students must be accepted to Bluffton University to be invited to join the cheer and/or STUNT programs.

Video should include: toe-touch, pike, and a double jump; short cheer so we may evaluate motions and voice; partner and/or group stunt; best running and/or standing tumbling skill. Please indicate which teams you are trying out for: football, basketball, and/or STUNT. Preference will be given to those with at least three years of tumbling and stunt experience. However, a good attitude and willingness to learn will be factored in. 

During its inaugural year, beginning spring 2020, Bluffton’s cheer/STUNT team will compete against other NCAA DII and DIII schools from across the Midwest and in NCAA STUNT competitions.
