This season, for the first time ever, men will be cheering on NFL teams from the sidelines.

It’s the first time in NFL history that men will perform the same exact choreography as women.

Jesse Hernandez is the first male member of the “Saintsations” cheerleading team for the New Orleans Saints.

The Louisiana native debuted his moves at the Saints preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals on Friday.

The Los Angeles Rams also added two men to their cheerleading squads this year: Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies.

Hernandez’s mother, Tracey Hernandez, told reporters that her son was bullied after he became the first male on his high school dance team.

Now, he's on national television.
