First male NFL cheerleaders heading to Super Bowl

Los Angeles (ABC) — In addition to the game, commercials, and the half time show, there is another reason to watch the super bowl.

The first-ever male NFL cheerleaders are heading there.

Professional dancers Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will perform. In March of last year, the Los Angeles Rams announced the addition to their cheerleading squad.

Both cheerleaders took their excitement to twitter, drawing a lot of attention on social media.

“It’s been a crazy 10 months. Dancing hard and really engaging with our community and our team and supporting our players,” Jinnies said. “I can’t believe that we made it to this point, so I’m pretty sure it’s showing off that we’ve been working pretty hard.”

Peron said he “definitely” noticed their first season has been a catalyst for other men in the sport.

The Los Angeles Rams will play the New England Patriots on February 3rd in Atlanta.
