First male cheerleaders in Super Bowl history return as Los Angeles Rams face Cincinnati Bengals

THE Super Bowl's first ever male cheerleaders will return Sunday night after making history three years ago.

Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies drummed up support for the Los Angeles Rams against the New England Patriots in Atlanta in 2019.




Never before had the biggest game in American sport seen male cheerleaders.

But they weren't a lucky charm as the Patriots ran out 13-3 winners at Mercedes Benz Stadium.

The pair will return at SoFi Stadium this weekend when the Rams face the Cincinnati Bengals.

And they'll be joined by three more male cheerleaders as part of the Los Angeles supporting cast.

Peron said before the history-making appearance in Atlanta: "We are so happy to be here, the smile hasn't left my face since we arrived.

"We have a lot of people in Los Angeles from different cultures and different backgrounds.

"I think its really important that everyone on the team reflect that, from our boys on the field to the people on the sideline and even our cheer team."

Speaking of the Rams set-up, Peron added: "As an organisation this is exciting".

Peron, from Rancho Cucamonga, California, was 16 when he started dancing.

He said: "I caught some flack. But if this is what you want to do, then do it because its your life.

"No one can live your life for you.

"Dream your dream, live your truth and if there's something out there that you want to do, do it.

"Go out there, attack it and get it."

Jinnies, from Santa Barbara, California, started dancing 15 years ago.

He said: "You always have to have thick skin no matter what you're going for. You just need to go for it."
