An Albany cheerleading team could be featured on a reality show.

More than 50 girls tried out to join the two time national champion Albany Elite “Tiger Paws" at the Renaissance Cultural Arts Center. Coaches are in talks with MTV about possibly being on a cheerleading reality show. Coaches say if they are selected they want to send a positive message.

"Really that it's a Christian organization,” said Dr. Latonya Peterson, Assistant Coach. “We stress academics first. We do mentoring, we stress academics first and then it's cheerleading. We want everybody to know that cheerleading is a sport."

So far, they've made it to the top 25. Coaches have to send in some paperwork to MTV in the next couple of weeks.
