Hope you haven’t been waiting too long for the second installment! As promised, we’re giving you another 15 NFL cheerleaders from the 2018 season that are sure to have your jaws hitting the floor. If you missed Part 1, be sure to go and check it out before diving into the beauties on this list!
1. Hailey, Seattle Seahawks
Our first of the NFL cheerleaders on the list hails from the Sea Gals, the team supporting the Seattle Seahawks. Hailey is now on her third year with the team and we couldn’t be happier for it! This 24-year old is a University of Washington alumna who is now working as a Business Development Executive. She’s been dancing for 19 years across various disciplines including ballet, tap, jazz, and musical theater, among others. Her favorite dance style, however, according to her Sea Gals website profile, is hip-hop! She has two Instagram accounts; the first for official Sea Gal business and the second for personal events.
2. Brittany Brainer, Baltimore Ravens
Brittany is a second-year veteran with the Baltimore Ravens cheerleaders, one of the very few NFL teams that have male cheerleaders! If you look closely at the photo above, you’ll see the sparkly wedding ring on her left hand, too. That’s right, she and her husband Brad tied the knot in June 2016 in a beautiful lakeside ceremony. It’s apparent that they like to travel and go on adventures together as they have photos on the beach and snowboarding together. He also supports her while she’s cheering on the sideline.
3. Malia Burley, Carolina Panthers
A true Carolina native, Malia starts her rookie season with the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders fresh out of graduation from Campbell University, where she obtained a Communication Studies degree. She currently works as a certified Zumba instructor and hopes to one day open up her own dance studio. While she was in college, she started her own hip-hop fitness class at her university. Apart from dancing, her hobbies including kayaking and paddle boarding.
4. Vanessa Wahl, Indianapolis Colts
Not much is known about this Indianapolis Colts beauty except that she’s a second-year veteran this year. Vanessa is a native of Greenwood, Indiana and an alumna of the Indiana University. Judging by her Instagram posts, she’s kind of a fitness buff and enjoys both eating healthy and doing all sorts of workouts at the gym.
5. Shaniah, Oakland Raiders
Shaniah is one of the more experienced NFL cheerleaders on our list. This season is her 4th with the Oakland Raiders cheerleaders. Before going to the NFL, she was an NBA dancer for – yup, you guessed it – the Golden State Warriors. Unlike most – if not all – of the dancers we’ve covered so far, Shaniah did not have continuous formal dance training since her early childhood years. She started as a child but eventually gave it up to try her hand in teen sports. When she hit her teens, she went back to dancing and has stuck to it ever since. Her Raiderettes website profile tells us that she’s a California State University graduate with a degree in public relations and marketing. She works as a Customer Relations and Social Media Manager. One day, she hopes to publish a children’s book series.
6. Abby Nicole, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
23-year-old Abby Nicole is a stunning blonde in her rookie season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Before joining the NFL cheerleaders, she was a professional dancer in the NHL. In her Instagram account, she says that the Buccaneers are her favorite team in the league. When she secured her spot on the cheer team, she went after her dream and moved from her hometown in Texas to Florida. She’s a graduate from the University of Texas at San Antonio but it’s not clear what degree she obtained. Apart from the basic information we could gather from her social media, there’s not much else we can say. All we know is, her boyfriend is one hell of a lucky guy!
7. Taylor C., Baltimore Ravens
Taylor may be the youngest of the NFL cheerleaders we’ll have on our list. While the other girls are at least in the latter years of university if not already working, Taylor just graduated from high school. As a matter of fact, she auditioned and got accepted while she was still in school – albeit in the last few weeks of her senior year. Yes, that’s right. She was balancing prom and graduation with professional cheerleading practices. That’s pretty darn impressive if you ask me! This freckled redhead is both a ballerina and a cheerleader; she practiced both disciplines throughout her high school and was a part of her high school cheerleading squad. Given that she’s still pretty young, we’re hoping to see much more of her over the years!
8. Johnsie, Tennessee Titans
If you recall from Part 1 of this list, we did mention that the Tennessee Titans cheerleaders’ website doesn’t give much information about their girls, unlike the other teams. Luckily, she’s pretty open about her personal life on her personal Instagram account, which you can check out right here. From there, we found that she and her partner have been together since around 2006 and they got married in May 2012. They have no kids yet, but they do have a cat and a dog!
9. Kennedy Taylors, Washington Redskins
Kennedy is one of the few NFL cheerleaders on our list who’s still a student and she’s already on her 3rd year with the Washington Redskins. How she manages to balance her academic responsibilities and showing up for both cheerleading practice and NFL appearances is beyond me, but kudos to her! The Redskins cheerleaders’ website states her as an intern and a fitness instructor. Her Instagram bio and personal blog agree, stating that she teaches pure barre. It’s also revealed that she’s very much an animal person, being the mother of two cats and a Rottweiler. In late October 2018, she and fellow Redskins cheerleader Jordyn joined the Miss Maryland 2019 beauty pageant. Kennedy was in the top 5 and was eventually crowned the 3rd runner-up.
10. Justene Alpert, LA Rams
Justene is a beauty on a three-year-long run with the LA Rams. According to her Rams cheerleaders profile, She’s been dancing for a whopping 26 years! That’s some pretty intense dedication to her craft and she’s got the body as evidence of her hard work. She danced throughout high school and then college at California State University Long Beach. Her first dabble in the professional cheerleading world was in the NBA with the LA Clippers before moving to the NFL cheerleaders.
Digging through her Instagram reveals that she’s had some minor acting commercial modeling gigs. Another interesting fact is related to her boyfriend, Mason Trueblood (yes, apparently that’s his real name). He’s an actor and has a few minor roles under his belt. His most notable is probably as a member of the Warblers – one of the major show choir groups in the TV show, Glee. Yes, he played a gay singer in the show but let’s not talk about that.
11. Priscilla Womble, Atlanta Falcons
Some say that blondes are noticed but redheads are never forgotten. Well, nobody proves that better than Priscilla of the Atlanta Falcons cheerleaders. This freckled goddess looks absolutely stunning whether she’s all dolled up or in her natural, makeup-less state. Her rare looks may be because she’s actually half-Nigerian! She’s a two-year veteran and currently still a student at the Kennesaw State University, taking up a degree in Business Management. She works as a gymnastics instructor as well and she one day hopes to apply her degree to her passions – to build a business that allows her to coach young girls.
12. Riley Reed, Atlanta Falcons
We’ve got another brunette beauty from the Atlanta Falcons hitting our list with Riley Reed! No, not Riley Reid the pornstar, we’re talking about Riley Reed. Different last names, you see. This Riley is an NFL cheerleader and is on her 4th year with the Falcons – her first as one of the captains! She’s not a Georgia native, but it seems she’s called Atlanta home since she graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi (in her home state) with a degree in Business Management. She currently works as an Account Executive at Cox Media Group. Apart from her full-time jobs, she’s an aspiring makeup vlogger and you can check out her channel here, though admittedly there’s not much on it yet.
13. Morgan Dibb, Tennessee Titans
When looking through Morgan’s public Instagram account, the things that stand out the most in every photo are her striking baby blue eyes. Seriously, it’s hard to look away. It looks like she’s a natural blonde, too, so that’s definitely a killer combo that made her a shoo-in for this list. She occasionally dyes her hair a light brown color and that look just brings her beautiful eyes even further into the forefront of her features.
There’s no information about her on the Titans cheerleaders website, sadly. However, we’ve deduced from digging through her social media that it’s her first year as a Titans cheerleader. She also very recently moved to Nashville but it’s not clear where she was living before that. Regardless of where she came from, we certainly hope she’s here to stay!
14. Rachel Wyatt, Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are often called “America’s Sweethearts” and are easily the favorite team – both the players and the cheerleaders. Seeing the beauties like Rachel on the cheerleaders’ roster explains exactly why they’ve caught so many men’s hearts.
Rachel is one of the luck rookies to join the Cowboys and NFL cheerleaders this year and we’re overjoyed! This former pageant queen has decided to pursue her love for dance. She’s a South Carolina native and was part of the dance team of her university alma mater. She’s currently a graduate student, balancing that with her job as an NFL cheerleader. Check out her profile on the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders’ website to learn more about her!
15. Nicole Manelas, New England Patriots
Our last for this list and our first from the New England Patriots, Nicole is a 4th-year veteran and a gorgeous one at that! Not only that, but she’s brainy too. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Endicott College with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship and a minor degree in Dance. That is pretty damn impressive! She’s also on her way to forging both of her degrees as she has recently opened her own fitness studio to share her love for dance and fitness. She loves to climb mountains and her Instagram photos certainly reflect her adventurous spirit!
That ends the second part of our installment, but it’s not completely over yet! Stay tuned for the third and final part, coming soon!
