CHEERLEADERS SPRING TO LIFE AHEAD OF NFL SEASON

0

BALTIMORE: The start of the American football season is five months away, but the Baltimore Ravens are wasting no time selecting the only co-ed cheerleading squad in the National Football League (NFL). The Ravens, two-time Super Bowl champions, are unique in that its 50-strong squad includes 16 to 18 men who literally play a supporting role hoisting aloft their female stunt counterparts with the palms of their hands.Cheerleading is a classic all-American endeavor, conceived in the late 1800s to whip up spectator enthusiasm at college football games in shivering fall weather.
