She has a complicated relationship with her father.

Maddy revealed on the show that her father didn’t want her to go to school in Navarro, which is in Texas, while her family is based in Massachusetts. “He hasn’t had the opportunity to see me much in my life,” Maddy said. “But at the end of the day, it’s kind of his fault.”

Ostis said in an interview with filmmakers that she was struggling to make ends meet after Maddy’s father went to jail.

“We were literally living on paycheck just to eat and have a roof over our heads,” she said. Maddy wanted to join an all-star cheerleading squad but there was “no reasonable way it would be right because I couldn’t provide that,” Ostis continued.

But an all-star gym called ECE decided to give Maddy a scholarship so she could pursue next-level training without having to pay a ton.

“Maddy didn’t have much parental supervision or care,” said Cassie Bienveue, co-owner of the ECE gym on the show. “She needed it.”

Maddy said in a November Instagram post that she had her “last” Navarro football game. “I will miss my times at Tiger Field, always go to Bulldogs 🐶,” she wrote.
