For the first time in NFL history, a team will have men as part of its official spirit squad. Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies were introduced Wednesday as part of the 2018 Los Angeles Rams cheer squad! AMAZING!
Both Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies are classically trained dancers and have been performing their entire lives.
Napolean JInnies went to Twitter to express his disbelief on making the squad. Check out his adorable post below:
The official LA Rams Cheerleaders Twitter account introduced it's new "rookie" team, along with returning members:
Other NFL teams have males in the their stunt teams, however, the two classically trained dancers will be the first men to cheer alongside women.
Both Peron and Jinnies were among the 76 finalists chosen for the 40-person squad. Jinnies said the auditions were unlike any thing he's ever been through before:
"This one was about three weeks long and we had a bunch of rehearsals in between and an extensive interview process, but it was really humbling and amazing to be invited every time you came back."
I am so proud of these two, and I cannot wait to see them do their thing on the squad! I hope to see other young men follow in their footsteps. So inspiring!
