Hekili Holland has stunned the internet with his perfect performance of his daughter’s cheer routine. The Air Force Captain was enthusiastically copying Mackenzi’s moves during a game, and he did his duty of getting the crowd hyped up as well. The video of his amazing moves has gone viral on social media, and he is setting a new standard for sports dads across the country.
Game day is an important day for any kid. Whether they’re out playing on the field or are performing at half time, the pressure to do well is quite intense, especially with so many people watching and cheering for both sides. One of the most encouraging moments is when they look up to see their loved ones in the stands cheering them on. With their family by their side, the young athletes get hyped to perform at their best.

The 38-second clip shows Holland in the stands enthusiastically moving along with the cheer team. His daughter taught him the routine beforehand, and he did not miss a step—complete with high kicks and turns! He also begins to yell the cheers back to the field, and he turns around to get other parents in the audience hyped as well. Scott Willard was amazed by Holland’s performance, so he recorded his moves and posted it on the internet.
As of publishing this article, the video has almost 4.5 million views. When interviewed by Fox, Holland said he didn’t expect the video to get so much attention. All he wanted to do was encourage his daughter and get the crowd hyped for her performance, and he accidentally set the new standard for a supportive sports dad. Mackenzie said she wasn’t surprised the video got so much attention; it’s just in her dad’s personality that he would be an amazing hype man.
The Air Force Captain is glad to be home and doing his duties as a father. He wants to make up for all the time he lost while he was serving his country, so he’s took it upon himself to be a super dad. He told the press that he already feels bad he has missed previous cheer performances and past softball games of his other daughter. One thing is for sure: he’s the best dad to have cheering for you in the bleachers.
