ABC News reports:
Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies will make NFL history yet again. This time around, they will be the first-ever male cheerleaders to perform at the Super Bowl.
The two men and their coach, Emily Leibert, told “GMA” Thursday that going to the Super Bowl feels “like a fairy tale,” but it’s a result of hard work.
Peron and Jinnies made history with the L.A. Rams’ 2018 cheer squad back in March when they were officially announced as the newest members after a rigorous audition process. With that, they became the first male cheerleaders with the NFL.
Some on Twitter are discounting the “first” claim, saying that the 2013 Super Bowl featured a male cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens. See the 2013 TMZ clip below.
