When large groups of rowdy teens gather together, it’s not a bad idea to have an officer of the law on hand. But don’t expect him or her to be the life of the party, right?
That may usually be the case, but at a recent Appleton East football game, School Resource Officer Jack Taschner proved cops can have fun, too.
In the video below, Taschner climbs the stands toward the student section where a high schooler is leading some cheers. He tells the crowd to quiet down and seats the impromptu cheerleader. The kids all boo, thinking he’s squashing their fun… when really it’s just because he wants to cheer-lead himself!
That’s when Tashner turns to the field and breaks out in his own hilarious cheer– soon everyone is joining in!
“I got into it as much as they did,” Taschner later said. “When I realized they were all doing it with me, I wanted to let it go on forever, I knew my legs weren’t going to let me.”
Fun fact about Taschner; he’s no ordinary cop. The Wisconsin officer was a Major League Baseball player from 2005-2010. No wonder he has so much team spirit!
