Hot 55 Year Old Grandma On The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleading Squad?
Yes, that’s correct a 55 year old grandmother of two is trying out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader team. Sharon Simmons, author and fitness expert, is taking her shot at her dream.
Simmons would be 56 at the beginning of the next NFL season, becoming the oldest cheerleader in the league. The previous oldest cheerleader was Laura Vikmanis of the Cincinnati Bengals at 43.
Simmons competed in her first fitness competition at the age of 50 and has won nine of 20 competitions. She takes weekly dance classes from a former Cowboys cheerleader who is familiar with the difficult process of their auditions. She also has a private lesson once a week and faces more training once a week at another studio.
She auditioned Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Good for you Sharon, live your dream!!!
