PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – We’re not sure how football will play out this season, but the Philadelphia Eagles are still hoping to give fans plenty of reasons to cheer.
They held virtual tryouts for their cheerleading squad, welcoming eight new members.
Cristina Rosano just graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, as a doctor of optometry and will be trading her lab coat for a pom pom on Sunday.
“This is literally a dream come true,” Rosano told Action News. “I grew up as a dancer, and I used to go to Eagles games with my dad, watching the cheerleaders on the sidelines always wishing I could be one of them. So when I tried this year and went through my cut. It was like, ‘OMG it happened it happened!'”
This happened to Dr. Kyle Kammerle, too.
A physical therapist and adjunct professor, he never imagined hanging up his stethoscope on a weekend for something like this.
“I honestly think that accessibility, being online, and being able to record yourself on your own time, is the only reason why I do it,” Kammerle said.
These two, can dance, and can also make a difference in the lives of their patients at the same time.
“I think a lot of times you silo people in a box in their career,” Kyle said. “We can be these analytical scientific people, in the medical field, but also have this incredible gray area which is this creative, artistic side, doing things like dance, and that can exist together.”
Cristina added, “I want to prove to people, young boys and young girls, you can do everything! Set out for higher education, lawyer, doctor, then shoot for your dreams too, become an NFL cheerleader. All! There is no ceiling! “
