Sharon Simmons of Carrolton Texas is a single mom, and grandmother of 2, and last Saturday she tried out for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.  Did we mention that Sharon is 55 years old?

Sharon is not your average grandma.  She's been entering fitness contests for years and definitely does not look 55.

(Now just about everybody is leaving out a pretty big piece of the story, I guess they don't want to bring people down, but Sharon didn't get a call back. The means she didn't make the squad. But I think she is a hell of a champion for giving it a shot at all...AND she did earn a chance to try-out for Quarterback.)
