HYPE Step Team is from Winterville, North Carolina. It was founded in 1995 in by Mr. Willie Joyner. Mr. Joyner was a teacher at Enfield Middle School in Enfield NC and recognized the need to provide something extracurricular for the young men in the community. Present members are: Former active steppers and now Asst. Coaches Nick Reeve and Josh Gray, Steppers: A.J. Roberts, Raquan Smalls, Tyler Ebron-White, Chris Wallace, Davis Foreman. They have won many competitions, but pride themselves on being scholars in their classroom. Many of them are college bound with visions of going to UNC, Howard, and ECU to name a few. The group also believes strongly in supporting their community by mentoring their little brothers called HYPE Phase II. 
It is unknown whether or not HYPE Step Team was present during Judgment Week as it was never seen, but even if it was, it did not advance to the Quarterfinals.
