NFL’s First-Ever Male Cheerleaders Join the Los Angeles Rams

Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies are the first male cheerleaders in NFL history.

NFL broke historical grounds when the Los Angeles Rams announced that two male cheerleaders would be joining their cheerleading squad.

Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies are classically-trained dancers and were among the 76 finalists in the Rams auditions. In an interview with Good Morning America, Peron said, “I thought, ‘Why not me? Why can’t I do this?’

According to Jinnies, the auditions were a difficult and unique process, unlike any other he has been to in the past. “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,” Jinnies said in a statement to GMA.

The California-natives are expected to perform as traditional cheerleaders and it seems like they are off to a positive start with their teammates. “They bring so much energy and there’s something so magnetic about their performance, you really can’t take your eyes off them,” LA Rams cheerleader captain Emily Leibert stated about Peron and Jinnies.
