There will be male cheerleaders on the sidelines of NFL games for the first time ever this upcoming season.

The Los Angeles Rams announced Wednesday that two men - Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies - have joined their previously all-female cheerleading squad. While the Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts both employ male stuntmen, Peron and Jinnies will make history as the first male dancers for an NFL team.

The men, both California natives, were among the 76 finalists who auditioned for the Rams' cheerleading squad. They joined "Good Morning America" on Wednesday along with cheerleader captain Emily Leibert to talk about the audition process.
