Not only are the Los Angeles the early favorites to win the NFC West when the 2018-19 NFL season comes around, but the team has just announced that they will be making history by becoming the first NFL team ever to include men in their cheerleading squad.
Napoleon Jinnies and Quinton Peron are set to take the sidelines alongside their female counterparts next season, pumping the fans up with the routines that, until now, have been exclusive to female cheerleaders. However, this certainly opens up the possibility for some pretty cool lifts and throws that we haven’t seen before, so it’ll be interesting to see how LA’s new cheerleading squad RAMps things up when they take the field come late August.
Introducing the 2018 #LARams Cheerleaders! 🎉

We had guys on our cheerleading squads in school & they were great. Don’t see what the big deal is for people who are so negative.
