Lawrence Herkimer Brief Biography

Lawrence Herkimer (born c. 1925) is an American innovator in the field of cheerleading. He created the Herkie cheerleading jump, which was named for him, and received a patent for the pom-pon. Herkimer has described his contribution to the field as taking it "from the raccoon coat and pennant to greater heights".

As a cheerleader at Southern Methodist University developed what became known as the Herkie by accident while intending to perform a split jump. The move features one arm extended straight up in the air and the other on one's hip, with one leg extended straight out and the other bent back. At SMU, he formed a national organization for cheerleaders and created a cheerleading-oriented magazine called Megaphone.
