(Atlanta, GA) This Sunday at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, former Mountie Quinton Peron will become a part of NFL History. Although he will be on the field and he will be “suiting up,” he won’t be on the playing field. He will however be on the sidelines as one of the first male cheerleaders at the Super Bowl. Peron along with fellow Rams Cheerleader Napoleon Jinnies, will be the first male cheerleaders ever to perform at the Super Bowl.
Peron attended Mt. San Antonio College from 2010 through the 2015 and was a member of the Mt. SAC Pep Squad Dance Team, where he often suited up as Mt. SAC’s Mascot, Joe Mountie.
“He was always very fun to watch on the sidelines,” replied Mt. SAC Athletic Eligibility Specialist and former University of Nebraska Cheerleader, Anisurei Escalera. “When suited up as Joe Mountie, he would often do the “Dougie” (a popular Hip Hop Dance move) to the delight of the fans.”
Along with Peron, Mt. SAC Alumnus Raquel Ortiz will also be cheering for the Rams. Ortiz and Peron both spent time together on the Pep Squad Dance Team. Ortiz is in her second year with the Rams Cheerleading Squad and is also a former Laker Girl.
