55-year-old Sharon Simmons of Carrollton, Texas is a single mother and a grandmother of two. And on Saturday, she tried out to become a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Now, she doesn’t LOOK like a stereotypical grandmother. She’s been entering fitness competitions since she turned 50, and has won nine of the 20 she’s entered. She’s also got a six-pack and blonde hair.
Right now, the oldest cheerleader in the NFL is 43-year-old Laura Vikmanis, who’s a cheerleader for the Cincinnati Bengals. As for cheerleader grandmothers, The Raiders also had a 37-year-old grandmother on their cheerleading squad last season.
Sadly, while it’s impressive that Sharon tried out, she didn’t get a callback, so she won’t be a Cowboys cheerleader.
