Good Morning America features Los Angeles Rams’ historic cheerleaders who will be first male cheerleaders in Super Bowl

New, comments

Quinton Peron, Napolean Jinnies and coach Emily Leibert were on GMA to talk about their upcoming historic performance in Super Bowl LIII.

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.

Now, they’re making history again since, obviously, they’ll be the first male cheerleaders ever to perform in the Super Bowl when the Rams face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.

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.

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.
