Cheerleaders are as much a part of high school football as blocking and tackling.

This year, The Post is giving fans a chance to show their online support for the young people who back their team throughout the season in our inaugural cheer squad of the week poll. Last year's campaign highlighted individual cheerleaders, but reader feedback indicated that cheer squads, like their football peers, operate as a team and should be recognized as such.

We agree, thus the poll, which can be accessed on The Post's website by clicking on either photo, as well as Facebook and Twitter.

Fans have until Wednesday to cast their ballots. Vote as often as you like. Week 1's choices are Butler and West Charlotte High schools, so represent your school and start clicking. We'll feature two teams every week during the regular season.
