Two men are poised to make history at the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 . . . from the sidelines. On Sunday, keep an eye out for Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies as the Los Angeles Rams face off against the New England Patriots. They're going to be the first male cheerleaders in NFL history to perform at the Super Bowl.
Both Peron and Jinnies joined the Rams in March 2018, becoming two of the first male cheerleaders since the league started nearly 100 years ago. Other NFL teams had stuntmen previously, but Peron, Jinnies, and the New Orleans Saints' Jesse Hernandez were the first to dance alongside their female counterparts. Peron tweeted after the team secured its spot in the Super Bowl: "Napoleon, you think Atlanta is ready for us? NAHHHHHH. We're going to the Super Bowl!"
Peron told Good Morning America that after this "fairy-tale" experience, many more men have expressed interest in becoming cheerleaders like him and Jinnies. "It's exciting to see the tide change a little bit," Peron said.
