Earlier this year we told you about 55-year-old grandmother Sharon Simmons who was planning to try out for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleader team. Tryouts took place over the weekend, and Simmons participated as she planned. Only things didn’t go as well as she had hoped.
Simmons told the Morning News that she forgot her routine during the freestyle portion of the competition and had to make it up as she went, but it didn’t derail her experience.
Simmons has written a book, works in commercial real estate, and also participates in fitness competitions. She’s also begun an acting career and has no regrets about the tryout.
“With me, it has been about the journey,” Simmons said. “It literally has been about the journey. I’ve met incredible people, I’ve learned so many new things.”
