The NFL is been receiving a lot of attention this year. Now they are making history by featuring two male cheerleaders on the field for the Los Angeles Rams. Since 1954 the NFL have had cheerleaders on the field; 26 of the 32 teams in the NFL featured cheerleaders.
Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will be the first male cheerleaders when the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.
Peron and Jinnies made the Rams cheerleading squad back in March. Jinnies called making the team a “humbling and amazing” experience. Peron said there wasn’t a good reason for him not to try out for the squad.
“I was at (an L.A.) Lakers game (right before making the team) and I was watching the Laker Girls,” Peron told “Good Morning America” last summer, “and I was asking myself, ‘Why can’t I be down there?’ I’ve choreographed for girls who dance on pro teams, I’ve danced with girls on various pro teams. I just thought, ‘why not me?'”
