If happy to be back, why did she leave Cheer?

Seems like Covid-19 made many people part ways from a few things they loved, and find others they are passionate about! Lexi Brumback is among these talented and passionate humans who would not stop till they find out what they are actually made for. And Covid-19 was her chance.

However, coach Monica revealed little about Burback’s disappearance. Lately, Lexi opened up about her reason saying: “It was really hard to juggle it all when COVID hit,” Brumback explains, adding she felt closed off from the world and had a hard time adjusting from the grind of cheer and classes to not much at all. “I started falling behind in my classes, and then I wasn’t eligible to compete at Daytona anymore.”

Although the team didn’t feel the same without her, it was evident from the charges against Jerry Harris that Lexi wouldn’t want to come back. Cheer went down from competing in the annual Daytona cup to having to say goodbye to its favorite leaders.

What are Lexi’s future plans?

Talking to MySanAntonio, Lexi shared, “I really want to put all of my focus into my dreams. I love cheer, but that’s not the career path that I want to take with my life. Whenever I’m at Navarro, every single day is dedicated to cheer. She further says, “It’s hard to put your focus into anything else. I will go back to visit my Navarro babies and cheer them on because Navarro will definitely always be a part of who I am.”

Further, Brumback is already making a good amount of money by promoting big brands such as Savage X Fenty and Rihanna’s lingerie line. She has her own clothing brand called Hexx by Lexx as well. Moreover, she is a successful Instagram influencer with 808K followers.
