PHILADELPHIA EAGLES WELCOME FIRST MALE CHEERLEADER
 

The NFL's Philadelphia Eagles are changing the face of NFL cheering. Front and center is 21-year-old Kyle Tanguay who has been making headlines since he made the team last spring. He’s the first man to join the squad in 35 years and only the fourth male cheerleader in the entire NFL.

It seems trailblazing is in Tanguay’s blood. Kyle’s 98-year-old great-grandmother, Shirley Hodgdon, was the first female cheerleader at her Portsmouth, New Hampshire high school in 1937. And before that her father, Kyle’s great-great grandfather, was the captain of the Dartmouth College gymnastics team.

Kyle also grew up in New Hampshire, but moved to Philly in 2017 to study dance at the University of the Arts, where he’s now a junior pursuing his BFA degree.

Even though Kyle’s in the spotlight now that he’s the singular guy on the team, he’s keeping a level head. ‘I would encourage people to keep an open mind and just have faith in the process and trust that the decision was made with the intent to give the fans the best experience possible.’

Last April, Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies became the first male cheerleaders in the NFL when they joined the Los Angeles Rams. They also became the first to perform at the Super Bowl in February. Then Jesse Hernandez made the cut for the New Orleans Saints’ team, all helping to pave the way for Kyle.

Congratulations to all the male cheerleaders of the NFL… We say bring it on guys!
