HOUSTON – Over 1,000 of Houston’s finest turned up at Houston Methodist Training Center for a chance to perform in front of over 70,000 fans as a Houston Texans cheerleader.

The practice field was full of big hair, big smiles, and some fierce competition.

This is only the first of several rounds, so eventually 1,000 women will be whittled down to a squad of 35 to cheer on our Houston Texans. Good luck, ladies!
