The Los Angeles Rams made history this year when two male cheerleaders, Napoleon Jinnies and Quinton Peron, made the squad as the first male cheerleaders in NFL history.

I can’t breath
Good Morning America had the two along with coach Emily Leibert on this morning to talk about their preparation for next Sunday and their experience this season which has made a huge impact nationally as Peron noted:
I think we can both say that we’ve been reached out to by so many men that are so excited to try out, not just men our age but young men trying out for the junior high school cheer team, and it’s exciting to see this change.
Aye Napoleon, you think Atlanta is ready for us? ... NAHHHHHH ... WE’RE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL! pic.twitter.com/oWFAElcw61— Quinton Peron (@Qperon) January 21, 2019
Peron added that he was surprised by the support of their fans:
We have the best fans ever, so supportive, and just everyone’s so excited to see us. And then the Rams doing well, just the camaraderie of LA...it was insane. I don’t know what to say. I’m speechless.
Except that he wasn’t speechless when GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos asked the trio who was going to win.
We gon’ win, boy!
I couldn’t be prouder of the Rams or happier for these two. Props to GMA for having them on this morning.
