The Pats cheerleading squad was ranked as the best in the NFL this season by CNBC sports business columnist Darren Rovell.
As announced by the Patriots on Thursday, Rovell rated each each NFL cheerleading squad based on how well they interact with their team’s fanbase through outlets like community involvement, social media and marketing. In the past year, some cheerleaders have traveled to military bases throughout the Middle East where they have donated their time by assisting in humanitarian projects for the troops, as well as performing for them.
Back home, the squad works with the Junior Patriots Cheerleaders, an organization founded in 2002 that lets youth cheerleaders practice routines with them and get the opportunity to perform on the field at Gillette Stadium.
Notable Patriots cheerleaders include Alexa Flutie and Asia Barnes, the daughters of former Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie and former Patriots linebacker and current NFL Hall of Famer Andre Tippett.
