NFL fans will soon be in for a surprise. For the first time, an NFL team will have male cheerleaders. The Los Angeles Rams have recruited two men as part of its official spirit squad. Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies will be the first men in NFL history to dance alongside their female counterparts. Other NFL teams have men who do stunts, but they do not dance. Quinton and Napoleon are both classically trained dancers with years of experience. They were selected after a rigorous three-week-long process of auditions and interviews.

The captain of the LA Rams cheerleader squad talked about her new colleagues in an interview on TV. She said: "They really just fit the bill to be a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader. They are intelligent; they are eloquent; they are more than qualified to be ambassadors out in the community." She added: "They bring so much energy and there's something so magnetic about their performance that you really can't take your eyes off them." Napoleon praised the team for welcoming them and said he was "humbled" by his new role. He wants to prove that "boys can dance too".
