Renee Basham Owner

“What I love about Prodigy All-Stars is the environment we are able to provide each athlete as they are shaped into the leaders of tomorrow.  To encourage them to have PRIDE in their abilities, PASSION for their craft, and PERSISTENCE to reach their goals both in and out of the gym.  As not only the owner but a coach, I aim to cultivate confident individuals and true PRODIGIES long after their time in the sport of cheerleading."

I am the owner and Director of Prodigy All-Stars.  I was born and raised in Houston, TX. As an athlete, my career began as a competitive gymnast for 8 years and a competitive cheerleader for 2.  I then went to the University of Houston and graduated with a degree in Business Management.  My husband and I started Prodigy All-Stars in 2007 and we could not be happier!  I feel so blessed to impact the lives of young athletes and teach them the ideals of life through a competitive sport.  I believe all my athletes are "Prodigies" and enjoy the process of watching and molding them into outstanding young adults.  Outside of Prodigy All-Stars I like to garden, exercise, and spend time with my family.

Auggie Villarreal

“What I love about Prodigy All-Stars is the family atmosphere that is created by all of the coaching staff. Having a family of my own, this is a quality I appreciate so much in the gym. Everyone is so warm and welcoming!”

Auggie was born and raised in San Antonio, TX where he first started his cheerleading career as an athlete at Texas Wolverine All-Stars. He cheered competitively while attending Breckenridge High School and once he graduated he studied at Northwest Vista College. Following high school his cheerleading career continued at Dynasty Cheer in Rockwall, TX. Auggie’s passion for All-Star and coaching began to expand. Once he knew that the sport of All-Star is where his calling was, he started coaching at Twist and Shout in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2012. While coaching at Twist and Shout he won many NCA, Cheersport, and Summit National titles, as well as winning back-to-back NCA All-Star titles in the Small Coed Level 5 division. In 2018, he was awarded the Silver Medalist at the Cheerleading Worlds Championship. Auggie loves all aspects of the sport of All-Star and thoroughly enjoys working with the athletes and having a positive impact on their lives for the better. When he is not in the gym he enjoys spending time with his wife, Aly, and his children, Amelia and Auvey.
