DENVER Broncos cheerleader Gabriela Windey, known as Gabby, is a contestant on season 26 of The Bachelor.
The season isn’t set to release until early 2022, but the 31-year-old has made a name for herself well before the show kicks off.
Who is Gabby Windey?
Windey is a cheerleader for NFL’s Denver Broncos, but during the Covid-19 pandemic, she showed her passion extends beyond the field.
When the pandemic closed stadiums and home gatherings, and hospitals were in dire need of staff, Windey focused her energy to save lives.
She had been a nurse for three years, when she was hired to be a cheerleader for the Denver Broncos in 2016.
Her dance accolades go back to when she was 12 years old, and eventually she joined the Denver Outlaws lacrosse team as part of the dance squad before moving to the NFL.
Since becoming a professional cheerleader, Windey has spent her time between both the ICU and the NFL sidelines, cheering on both her patients and her team.
During the pandemic, Windey put the majority of her focus into her nursing job and worked 12 hours or more.
The result of her efforts was winning the Pop Warner Humanitarian Award – alongside the Cleveland Chiefs lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif – making her the first woman to receive the award.
Typically, only NFL players receive the award, but in April 2020, she became the first. In the press statement put out by Pop Warner Little Scholars, it said, “Windey and Duvarney-Tardif’s selflessness and commitment to helping others are an embodiment of sacrifice and teamwork, making them model representatives for young student-athletes across the nation.”
