Alyssa Keller of All American Flames in Michigan is certainly one to watch. I first noticed Keller last year as a Level 9 athlete because of her incredible tuck full Tsuk vault. This vault was certainly eye catching because it was a rare thing to see in Level 9. So, every meet that the Lady Flames were at last season got me super excited because I knew I would see this vault! When I showed up to the first meet of the season and saw Alyssa competing Level 10 I knew everyone was in for a treat. Not only does Alyssa have a strong unique vault, she is also incredible to watch on the floor, with her powerful tumbling & sassy routine it’s definitely a performance to watch. Alyssa qualified to her first JO Nationals as a first year level 10 and even though she had to withdraw from the competition after two events she really left her mark. Alyssa competed a brand new vault in competition at JO Nationals, and was successful which was absolutely incredible to watch. Alyssa is entering her Senior Year this fall and is looking to make an impact in a huge way! Let’s get to know Alyssa a little bit better as she embarks on her final year of club gymnastics.
