NFL: Male Dancers Debut This Season


Football fans around the country will finally see male dancers while watching games this fall. The Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints will have male cheerleaders on the sidelines for the first time, making football history, reports CNN.

Two of the new cheerleaders, the Rams’ Napolean Jinnies and Quinton Peron, are inspiring more dancers to audition. And these cheerleaders aren’t stuntmen like the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens have, these men will be dancing with their female colleagues and doing the same choreography.

Check out Jinnies and Peron’s auditions below.
