The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens have male stuntmen, but Peron and Jinnies are the first male dancers for a professional National Football League team.

ICYMI - reports earlier this week claimed the Rams made history when they announced Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies would be joining the squad as the NFL's first male cheerleaders.

"I've choreographed for girls who dance on pro teams, danced with girls on various pro teams, and so I just thought: 'Why not me?'" The two found out this past weekend that they were among the 76 finalists for the squad, and this week they were told that they would be part of the 40-person cheerleading squad. He called up his friend and asked about the auditions of the Rams.

Jinnies told "Good Morning America" that the lengthy auditions were "unlike anything I've ever been to". He said he had become accustomed to getting a call or email after initial tryouts. These two newly inducted members are classically trained and have been dancing their entire lives.
