For the first time in decades, the New England Patriots will have male cheerleaders on the sidelines this season.
Two men were selected to be on the squad for the upcoming season.
“Walking (into tryouts), I knew people were going to look at me — one, because I am over 6 feet tall, and two, because I am a male,” said 23-year-old Driss Dallahi of Londonderry, New Hampshire.
They met each other for the first time at the squad’s optional cheerleading workshop several months prior to the auditions.
The pair immediately banded together because they weren’t sure of the criteria for male cheerleaders auditioning for the Patriots.
‘Walking (into tryouts), I knew people were going to look at me – one, because I am over 6 feet tall, and two, because I am a male,’ Dallahi of Londonderry, New Hampshire, told NBC Boston.
