Sharon Simmons, a 55-year-old cheerleader aspirant, auditioned for Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The 55-year-old Simmons will be the oldest cheerleader in NFL history if she passes the audition.
The 55-year-old Simmons was among the hundreds of cheerleader hopefuls who auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Simmons, a grandmother who turns 56 this month, became a trending topic over the web in February after declaring her intention of joining the audition as Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.
The 55-year-old Simmons explained that she “don’t see a number. If I do, it’s just a number. It’s not that I can’t keep up with [younger women] in the physical part of the training.”
Simmons considers the audition as “just like any other competition. There are steps to take to prepare, which is exactly what I’m doing.”
