For the first time ever in the Super Bowl, there will be male cheerleaders on the sideline.

The Los Angeles RamsQuinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies will be suiting up to cheer on Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and the whole Rams team as they take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII this Sunday in Atlanta. The Patriots’ cheerleading squad is all women.

The news was not lost on the guys, both of them tweeting about it last week.

Regardless of the outcome of the NFC Championship game, there was going to be at least one male cheerleader in the big game as the New Orleans Saints also have a male cheerleader, Jesse Hernandez.

The Baltimore Ravens did have male stuntmen on their sidelines when the team won Super Bowl XLVII six years ago. However, they were not a full and equal part of the cheerleading squad and were there to throw the female cheerleaders into the air and catch them.
