First, we brought you "Goose Guy."
Then, it was Tyler "18K" Lewis.
Now, we bring you Cammy.
By now, you have surely seen the video of the most epic dance off in the history of jumbotron dance offs. On Saturday against Louisville in John Paul Jones Arena, some time in the second half, our heroine found herself pictured on the big screen above the court. Rather than giggle or point and wave, as most featured jumbotronians do, she got serious.
Like, really serious.
The crowd in JPJ loved it in real time, and now America loves it three days later. Check out the Google search results for "Virginia dance off". Cammy Leech, a first year nursing student, takes her Virginia basketball (and her dancing) very seriously, and for that, we salute her. She's become so popular, Virginia football legend Chris Long has made her his avatar on Twitter. USA Today, Sports Illustrated, Washington Post (TIMES TWO! THEY DID TWO PIECES!), Bleacher Report, Rant Sports, Bro Bible, Total Frat Move, and Lost Letterman are just some of the outlets that picked up our rhythmic rapscallion, so being the diligent Virginia sports outlet that we are, we reached out to her.
STL: Are you known in your inner circle for your sweet moves?
CL: My inner circle isn't really a group of friends. We define ourselves as a "Wiccan Coven". I'm best known for my Banishing Spells rather than the Seduction Spells within the circle.
STL: How high is "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" on your 'songs I will utterly lose my spine to' list?
CL: I absolutely love that song but mostly for it's qualifier on the end of that line. You hear the title of the song and think that Whitney just wants someone to jam out with but upon closer examination, she doesn't merely want a dance partner. She wants someone to love her. I feel as though this song just really resonates with people on a very emotional level. I'm losing tears to this song and the spine just follows.
STL: What kind of spiritual connection do you feel with that cameraman now?
CL: He felt as though I looked through the camera into his soul and I can't say he's wrong. He has a deep love for puppies and queso. I think we'll be friends.
STL: Were you expecting this to go as big as Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated, and the Washington Post?
CL: I'm surprised the NSA hasn't shared it directly to everyone's phones so far but I can be content with the internet sites.
Cammy...you're an inspiration to all. Wahoowa.
