Over the years, the competition has been mainly female centered, but in the 2018 NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints blazed a brand-new trail by adding male dancers to cheerleading rosters. Ever since, the Rams have continued to invite them to be a regular part of the Co-ed teams of professional cheerleaders for teams throughout the NFL.
