We brought you Part One and Part Two, and we just couldn’t wait to give you Part Three! I’m sure that as fans of the great American sport, you’ve already seen a bunch of them gracing the fields during games this season. These girls need no general introduction, but if you’d love to know a little more about them, then this is the place to be. Kickoff time!
1. Dominick Fink, Jacksonville Jaguars
Dominick is a second-year NFL cheerleader with the Jacksonville Jaguars. While studying at the Old Dominion University, she was also a part of the school’s dance team. It seems like she has since graduated, and the Jaguars’ profile lists her job as a dance instructor. In 2014, Dominick was crowned as Miss District of Columbia Teen USA, making her a former beauty pageant queen. Looking through her Instagram, she often posts photos of her life as an NFL cheerleader and a mother. She’s the only cheerleading momma on any of our lists! We never would’ve guessed either, if not for the doting posts she has on her IG. Her son, Preston, is nothing short of adorable!
2. Tiyah Ejan, LA Rams
Asian sensation Tiyah is back for her second year dancing for the LA Rams! She’s currently still a student at Cal Poly Pomona, studying Nutrition Science (as per her Instagram bio) and she’s part of the school’s squad as well. Her profile on the Rams’ website reveals that she’s been dancing for 12 years – a little more than half her life (she’s 21 years old). She also stated that she loves different kinds of Asian food (sushi, Korean BBQ, and Ramen included) and that her favorite vacation spot is in the Philippines. Here’s hoping she’ll be back again next year!
3. Keleigh Britt, Carolina Panthers
Keleigh is another second-year veteran NFL cheerleader, this time hailing from the Carolina Panthers. She graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. So yeah, she’s a smart one! Her full-time job outside of being a cheerleader is as a computational analyst. She shares in the Panthers’ website that thanks to her job, she was part of the team that tested the aerodynamics of the US Olympic Men’s 4-man bobsled. How cool is that??
4. Amy Kennelly, Jacksonville Jaguars
Our second NFL cheerleader from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Amy is a fourth-year veteran with the team. Apart from cheering, she works at the Mayo Clinic Hospital as a program coordinator. It also seems that dancing isn’t her only passion. A quick look through her Instagram account shows a mixture of both cheerleading shots and…fishing. That’s right, this beautiful blonde is a proud Lady Angler (what she calls herself in her IG bio). One minute she’s in her Jaguars cheer uniform, the next she’s in fishing gear holding a bluefish tuna bigger than she is. It’s pretty darn impressive, that’s for sure. Fun fact: her cheering teammate, Allison Renn, is also a Lady Angler! Maybe there’s something about the Florida waters?
5. Jordyn, Washington Redskins
Maryland native Jordyn is a fifth-year veteran and one of the five captains of the “First Ladies of Football”. She’s got some angles that are reminiscent of Anna Kendrick from a few years ago (or is that just me?). But anyway, more important to note is that apart from cheering, she spends her time working as an Instructional Assistant. Her Redskins profile is brief but interesting, too! She talks about some of her favorites, including a rare hidden talent: apparently she’s really good at making tacos. Didn’t even know that was a thing! Some of her hobbies include style blogging (she posts occasionally on her IG) and traveling (she’s been to 23 countries already). Check out Jordyn’s profile to find out more!
6. Justine, Cincinnati Bengals
Many of the NFL cheerleaders sing praises about the bond of sisterhood that they experience during their time with their squad. It’s a very rare gem, however, when the sisterhood is actually real. Justine is one-half of Those Ben-Gal Sisters (click here for their shared Instagram) and that’s right – her sister Jordan is also a Ben-Gal cheerleader! She’s the one with the baby face, but the similarity to her sister is striking. Justine graduated from Xavier University with a degree in Computer Science; she is one of only 4 women in her class with that degree. She currently works as a technical data analyst and hopes to one day be a role model for women in the tech industry.
7. Melinda C., New England Patriots
Melinda is a fresh face this year, being a rookie NFL cheerleader. She recently graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Cosmetology, and her Instagram bio now lists her as an entrepreneur. While studying there, she rushed for the local chapter of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, something she credits as the most courageous thing she’s done so far. Check out her Patriots profile page to learn a little bit more about rookie Melinda!
8. Morgan, Denver Broncos
This is Morgan’s second year with the Denver Broncos. Originally from San Jose, California, she attended the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Since graduating, she has been working as a software engineer for Lockheed Martin Space. In the Broncos cheerleaders’ website, she shares that she has been dancing since she was 3 years old, but she also played competitive soccer throughout her high school years. There’s a lot of pretty interesting information on her profile, so be sure to check it out right here!
9. Lacey Munoz, Dallas Cowboys
Y’all are probably wondering why there aren’t more Cowboys cheerleaders on the list, given that they’re considered America’s favorite team. Well, don’t be up in arms just yet – we’ve got a compilation coming up exclusively for the Cowboys cheerleaders (stay tuned!). However, Lacey here is our little sneak peek at what that’ll have in store.
Lacey is a Texas native who’s now on her 5th year as an NFL cheerleader with the Cowboys. Her profile on the Cowboys cheerleaders’ website lists her as a student and a nanny, but it’s not clear where she’s studying. All we know is, she’s the lucky girl from the squad being sent to the ProBowl this year! Also, she looks stunning in a bikini.
10. Paige Lillian, Miami Dolphins
Paige hails from Boca Raton, Florida, and is now on her fourth year with the Miami Dolphins. Her blonde, beach-kissed locks and freckled face is a breath of fresh air! If you look closely, she’s got a small gap between her two front teeth and it’s melting our ice cold hearts. Her profile on the Dolphins’ website says she’s a student, but there’s no other information beyond that. From what we can tell by looking through her Instagram, she’s a beach-goer and fitness buff, and it looks like she knows how to surf as well. Now, the NFL has strict rules about body art, including tattoos (they can’t be visible). Paige has a tattoo on her right forearm, but she explains in a few Instagram stories how she uses makeup to cover it up on game day.
11. Agustina Sol Brischetto, Miami Dolphins
Agustina is a third-year veteran with the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders. She’s one of the few NFL cheerleaders that we’ve encountered so far who’s not originally from the United States. In fact, her hometown is La Plata, the capital of the Buenos Aires province in Argentina. She attended the National University of Arts in Argentina and also works as a model when she’s not cheering in the NFL. Apart from that, we can’t give much information about her. Her Instagram stories do show, however, that she likes to travel around North America, and she’s been to Italy and Portugal as well.
12. Samantha Paige Toney, Indianapolis Colts
Another four-year veteran, blonde-haired Samantha is evidently overjoyed to be back. She’s a former pageant queen (Miss Central Indiana 2018) and her Instagram aesthetic screams the confidence to show it. The Colts’ website lists her as a healthcare administrator, but her Instagram bio says that she’s an entrepreneur. Her online store is called Untitled Boutique, and they sell all kinds of stylish – but comfortable-looking- apparel. She’s also a photographer and has a separate Instagram account to showcase those skills. Although honestly, even her personal account is enough to show that she’s got a serious eye for good photos.
13. Lauryn Marie, LA Chargers
Unlike many of the other NFL cheerleader websites, the LA Chargers don’t give a lot of information and fun facts about their cheerleaders. Luckily, that’s what social media is for. While we know from the website that Lauryn is now on her third year as a Charger Girl, it was her Instagram that told us she’s the team’s Pro Bowl Cheerleader for 2018. Congratulations! We also managed to deduce that she’s a dance instructor for little girls learning what looks like hip-hop and jazz. She definitely looks like she has a fun and energetic personality if her pictures are anything to go by!
14. Caitlynn Kern, Denver Broncos
Caitlynn’s official Denver Broncos Instagram account is very new (like less than a year old) since this is her rookie year. As such, it doesn’t really tell us much about her life outside of being an NFL cheerleader. Prior to that, she cheered for the Denver Outlaws, the city’s pro lacrosse team. Her Broncos profile does, though! For example, we know she’s studying criminal justice at the Colorado State University, and she works as a paralegal. Also, her favorite holidays are Christmas, the 4th of July, and Thanksgiving – basically the biggest and most fun holidays in the US. Like her teammate Morgan (mentioned earlier in this list), she also played soccer while growing up. And here’s the last fun fact: her biggest fears are moths and spiders! Check out her profile to find out more.
15. Taylor Laffey, Jacksonville Jaguars
Last but definitely not the least, we’ve got another blonde bombshell: Taylor Laffey. Taylor is a new face on the field this year and she loves every minute of it! Her Instagram is littered with photos of game day and her time so far with the team. She was a Kappa Delta sorority girl at the Florida State University, where she graduated from in May 2017. Her website profile states that she’s a mental health professional. She could have also been a model – either that or she just looks amazing in a swimsuit, and knows to flaunt it. She also loves to travel!
That wraps up our compilation of favorites from the 2018 NFL cheerleaders! It was tough to pick out just 45 when each of the 26 teams with cheerleaders has at least 30 praise-worthy women each. Hopefully, our pickings were to your liking! And remember: an exclusive feature on the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders is coming up, and possibly for the Miami Dolphins too (those sun-kissed Miami girls are just too hard to ignore)! So keep your eyes peeled – we’ll keep them bombshells coming!
