For the first time ever in the Super Bowl, there will be male cheerleaders on the sideline.
The Los Angeles Rams’ Quinton 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 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.
