Pop Warner is more than football. The organization also hosts cheerleading and dance teams. Singer Mandy Moore -- who turned 26 in 2010 -- was a Pop Warner cheerleader for several years in Orlando, Fla. She recently released "Amanda Leigh," a new album featuring her real name and a slew of soulful songs. This musical comeback doesn't represent her only passion; Moore has starred in a number of films and made guest appearances on several television shows. In 2001, she also made a memorable feature film debut when she played a mean cheerleader in "The Princess Diaries." Her proclivity for cheer moves may have been due to her real-life experience as a Pop Warner cheerleader. But we're certain the sunny, sweet-natured Moore wasn't type cast.
