Maigan Will Cheer For Alfred Morris, Trent Williams And Brian Orakpo From The Opposing Sideline

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 1:21 pm


Although the unconferenced Pro Bowl presented a chance for Brian Orakpo to tackle Alfred Morris – or Trent Williams to block Orakpo – each of the Redskins three Pro Bowlers landed on the same team.

Maigan was not so lucky.

Washington’s 2014 Pro Bowl Cheerleader will have to cheer on the Redskins from the far sideline. In her report from Hawaii, Maigan wrote she was drafted by Team Rice. It was a busy day for Maigan, who snapped a photo with the other cheerleaders from the NFC East, rehearsed a half-time performance and posed for a photo shoot at Diamond Head.

Through it all she’s representing for the First ladies of Football. Read Maigan’s dispatch and check out more photos below. Read more »

Draft Day Viewing Party From FedExField

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 26, 2012 – 11:41 pm

The first ever Redskins Draft Day Party was a rousing success tonight, as more than 5,200 Redskins faithful filed into FedExField to watch live coverage from New York.

Admission to the event was free, and it gave Redskins fans the first opportunity to buy the new Nike jerseys, including those of first-round draft pick Robert Griffin III.  The 2012 Redskins Cheerleader squad was also on hand for autographs and entertainment, and many fans got their first look at the amenities of the club level, including the Redskins History Walls.

With the help of a professional photographer and the Public Relations staff on hand, we have a great photo gallery from the event: Read more »

Cheerleaders Prepped For Final Auditions

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 4, 2012 – 4:57 pm

Throughout the month of March, prospective members of the First Ladies of Football were invited to FedExField on Tuesday and Thursday nights to learn the routines of the Redskins Cheerleaders.  Now that the practice is out of the way, the squad is down to final auditions for the 2012 season, which will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday at the State Theater in Falls Church, Va.

While it is difficult to work on a Saturday afternoon, I will muster up the strength to cover the event, and I encourage you to come out as well.  Tickets are $15 for general admission and $25 for VIP, but the details are far more interesting on this flyer: Read more »

Former Redskins Cheerleader Back In Town

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 24, 2011 – 7:07 pm

Ana De Villegas was only a member of the Redskins Cheerleader squad for one year (2009), but made the commute from The Big Apple to be at today’s “Welcome Home Luncheon.”

Despite her short tenure with the team, she knows that her time with the Redskins Cheerleaders helped to propel her onto a bigger stage.

“I went for auditions and got a job dancing in New York.  I danced at the Minskoff Theater.”

Pretending to be worldly and well-cultured, I nodded my head obediently.

“That’s where ‘The Lion King’ plays, just in case,” she said with a laugh.  “It’s a beautiful theater, it was a great time.”

But just because Ana ran off to the big city doesn’t mean that she gave up her cheerleading and dancing roots.  She is now a dancer for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.  Once I assured her that there was no obvious rivalry between the Redskins and Devils, she explained the difference in the gigs.

“It’s a little bit less cheerleading-based,” she said.  “First you have to learn how to ice skate…no I’m playing, I’m playing.  They have a platform out on the ice and we come out there and dance between periods.  During the games we’re up in the stands and there’s some platforms up there.”

She credits her time with the Redskins as having given her the motivation to stick with sports dancing/cheering.

“I do love it,” she said.  “I’m a big sports fan–definitely football first, and I missed it a lot.  I still follow the Redskins up in New York.  I had a dance gig yesterday down here yesterday and I made sure to coordinate so that I could be here.”

Redskins Cheerleaders Meet and Greet With Fans

Posted by Ross Leonhart on July 30, 2011 – 1:10 pm

Redskins Cheerleaders Emerald (left) and Judy (right) were on hand for the first day of training camp open to the public.

The little guy in the middle, Grayson Ward, was one of the youngest fans on hand for the first day open to the public.  His grandfather, Mike, brought the 8-month old to Redskins Park for his first training camp.  Clearly, Grayson had one of the best seats in the house!

Redskins Cheerleaders And Limping Devils At The Calendar Shoot

Posted by Matt Terl on May 24, 2011 – 4:23 pm

Redskins Blog travel correspondent Jordan Beane checks in again from the Redskins Cheerleaders calendar shoot in Punta Cana, D.R.

For reports from the cheerleaders themselves, be sure to check out their blog on Redskins Rule. For even more, including (I believe) some exclusive photos from the calendar shoot, download the Official Redskins Cheerleader App. Until then, though, here’s Beane.

There’s a fairly simply formula for most calendar shoots here in the Dominican Republic. One beautiful girl plus water, sun and sand equals a gorgeous shot. Repeat. It’s a proven winner. However all good photographers need to be willing to change their plans at a moment’s notice.

Like when these guys show up. (Click photos to enlarge.)

The masked men dancing with Redskins cheerleader Emerald are two Diablos Cojuelos, the most popular costumes worn during the Dominican Republic’s Carnival. Dressed up to “symbolize the opposite, a world upside”, they also really add something to a calendar shoot.
