This enthusiastic dad has managed to rally an internet fan base of his own after he was filmed cheering on his daughter’s high school football team with zeal.
Hekili Holland was just one of the spectators watching the York High School Falcons play against the Warhill High School Lions in Yorktown, Virginia last week—except Holland was one of the only spectators who was kicking, jumping, clapping, and fist-pumping along with the cheerleaders.
In fact, since Holland’s daughter Mackenzi is on the Falcons cheerleading squad, Holland was able to join in on every dance routine without missing a beat.
Scott Willard, who had been watching the game from the stands, was in awe of Holland’s stellar dance moves—so he pulled out his phone and recorded a quick video for Facebook.
“This guy right here needs to go viral. By far CHEER DAD OF THE YEAR!” Willard wrote in the social media post. “This dude rocks!”
Since Willard posted the video of Holland’s wholesome cheers to Facebook, the footage has been viewed more than 4 million times.
Holland later admitted to Good Morning America that he never expected people to show such appreciation for his cheers because he was “just having fun,” he said. But, “if this bring joy to folks then I ‘m happy to be that guy.”
