Fifty-Five-Year-Old Grandma Tries Out for Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Tries to ‘Get It Mama’ (Video)

As a 22-year-old, Sharon Simmons wanted to become a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. She was a single mom at the time, though, and because of that and other reasons, she never got a chance to see it through.

More than 30 years later, she finally has that chance.

Simmons tried out for the prestigious Cowboys cheerleading squad on Saturday in Arlington — as a 55-year-old grandmother.

She already has author, fitness competitor and actor on her resume, so she’s decided to try and add Cowboys cheerleader as well. 

See the video below for her story.
