Message from Assistant Coach Cari Semmelman
My name is Coach Cari Semmelman and this is my 5th year as a GRMS Cheer Coach prior to serving as a GRMS Cheer Team Mom. I was born in Johnson City, New York and raised in the Daytona Beach area. As a child, I was motivated in the study of dance and competed nationally in field shows with my Winterguard team and band, qualifying as Superior in show execution. My own daughters have been cheering for the past 6+ years, exposing me to the exciting world of cheer. Wanting to be more involved in their sport, I began volunteering as the GRMS Team Mom. This eventually lead to my pursuit as a GRMS Cheer Coach. Through the National Federation of State High Schools Association (NFHS), I am certified in the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA) Spirit Safety and Concussions in Sports. I have also worked as a tutor with various reading programs at local elementary schools for 8+ years.

Current Coaches: Angi Aylor Boselli and Jesica King



Landrum Cheer Parent Info Meeting (Download Flyer)
WHERE: LMS Auditorium
WHEN: March 4, 2020 @ 6:00PM


Message from Coach Boselli:

A native to southern California, Angi Aylor Boselli was born and raised in Orange County.  A lifetime of dance training with a traveling dance troupe called Kids of America led her to her first experience with cheerleading at Serrano Junior High School where she was captain of the school cheer squad. In high school she was on the cheer squad for two years and was named co-captain as a sophomore.  Making a switch to the Songleading squad (pom squad) as a junior, she spear-headed the campaign to create cheerleading and songleading as a varsity sport, and was ultimately named captain during her senior year.  Following high school, Angi coached summer camps with Universal Dance Association for two summers. While attending the University of Southern California, she was on the coveted USC Song Girl pom squad for two seasons.  She was named Miss 1994 California and was 2nd runner-up at Miss United States.  After a year of travel with the title and a degree in Public Relations from the USC School of Journalism, she spent many years grooming young women for a wide variety of competitions, job interviews, etc. with her company Angi’s Angels.

Now residing in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida with her husband and NFL great, Tony Boselli and their 5 children, it has been her daughters who have brought her back into the cheer world.  She was the Head Cheer Coach for the Ponte Vedra Junior Development Football program for two years.  In 2008 Angi and her daughters, Ashli and Alexis, made the switch to Infinity All-Star gym where she coached for two years.  As her girls approached middle school, Angi accepted the Head Coach position at Providence School of Jacksonville where she completely did an overhaul of their high school and middle school programs.  In her 6 years as Head Coach, they won the FHSAA State Title and placed in the top 3 every other season, with the largest cheer teams in school history. Now her youngest daughter is approaching middle school and she is eager to build upon another successful local program at Landrum Middle School.  Always an advocate for young women and cheerleading, she is excited to be a part of the Landrum team!
