In 2008, the B.R.I.D.G.E.E. step team was established with inspiration from the “Divine Nine” Greek fraternities and sororities. The group was first formed by Dr. Eugenia Roberts, and two members of the B.R.I.D.G.E.E. organization, Bro. James “Silk” Wilkins III, and Bro. Charles Green. The gentlemen contacted Roland Holmes, who would become both a champion mentor and instructor for the participating members. The legendary line, which featured 12 prominent members, was named “Da Prototype.” This line would go on to solidify the foundation of the B.R.I.D.G.E.E. Step Team and set the tone for future lines to follow as an example.
