Susie Sanchez is a mother of 3 and a grandmother to 1, but that will never stop her from following in her dreams. Sanchez tried out for the Oakland Raiders cheerleading squad two years ago when she was 37, and made it.
Now close to 40 years of age, Sanchez is trying to live out her dreams again. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Sanchez along with 400 other women tried out for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad over the weekend.
Sanchez was the only grandmother to try out, but won’t quit, seeing as though she tried to become a Raiderette five times before succeeding.
The year I was on that team, some of the girls were born the year I graduated,” Sanchez explained. “If you look at the numbers, it’s ‘What am I doing?’”
“I thought why not?” Sanchez said. “I got to go to the big guys. I’ve got to go to the best team in the NFL.”
Sanchez auditioned in front of the judges for 90 seconds before being cut. She says she’s done trying out.
