Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders


3/11/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0308_paris_jackson_getty_splash_compositeParis Jackson could go straight from high school to the pros ... because she's already drawing interest from the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading squad ... TMZ has learned.

In fact, Eagles cheer-honcho Barbara Zaun tells TMZ ... she's seen the footage of Paris shaking her pom poms for her prep school's varsity squad recently and was super impressed ... saying, "We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader!"

"We thought that she had a lot of poise, confidence, and enthusiasm in her cheer performance," Zaun says ... adding, "Paris has that 'wow factor' that makes a great cheerleader."

But Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter will have to wait a few years before she can join the squad ... because the ShEagles (we just made that up) require members to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma.

Still, Barbara says when Paris is ready to don that Midnight green, black and silver ... Philly is more than happy to give her a shot.

"She is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges ... We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!"

NOT that they want her for her performance since she did NOTHING aside from hopping, but the ONLY reason they want her is just because she is the daughter of Michael Jackson as ALL know so they can get more popularity by having his daughter in their cheerleader squad!!! This is just what Michael Jackson avoided, that his children were used and exploited to get money and publicity!!! He wanted them to have a normal childhood and study BEFORE working, he always said that if they would have wanted a career in the showbiz he wouldn't have impeded them, but NOT while they were children!! Indeed he raised well-mannered and educated children NOT child stars which are permanently paraded all over the media and exploited in order to grab money and whatever!!!! Of course his wishes have NO importance for the Jacksons family of parasites who do not hesitate to make money off his children, and why on earth strangers should have some respect?!?! It's just sad and unfair, aside from being disgusting!!!

I'm not going to put down a 14 year old, but I will say that the girl doing the flips was far better. Paris got the notice in this video? It's definitely only because of her name.

Well that just makes the Eagles cheerleading organization look moronic. Though I'm sure the coach was just trying to be supportive, the Sheagles should've more concern about coming up with cheers coming off an 8 and 8 season.

They only want her because she's Michael Jackson's daughter. Trying to score some extra points Eagles? I'm positive u can YouTube videos of other more qualified cheerleaders who would jump at the opportunity

She is all set to begin her life as a freak!
Better for her to go to college, get an education & stay out of the limelight.

See in North America that is why some kids are so mess up. Instead of saying to Paris focus on education, they would like her join our cheer leader team. If she does join then in a couple of years she will either be mess up, drug, or plain crazy.

I'm thinking of other idiotic stories that tmz has MANUFACTURED and this has to rate right up there at the top. Which ever one if you that created this pos gets the IDIOT of the day award and this story will probably hold up for IDIOT of the week.

I don't usually write here but I'm floored. They wanted publicity and they got it. Paris' kick in the end alone would never get her on any squad - I mean high schools let alone pro. I guess when you pay 40K+ to attend Buckley and you're a Jackson, you make the squad if you're breathing. She has no sharpness, flexibility or presence. Philly is sad and is dying for a pseudo celeb. Paris is getting attention for everything but talent...here it begins.

Ok they need to worry about getting a team to cheer for first rather than worrying about who they want years from now. Not to mention one needs to thicken their skin if they want to do anything in Philly and oh yeah maybe learn how to duck,,,,,,lol

Of course she won't,it's a non-story. I like Paris, she's smart and a great girl. But although she has Michael's broad shoulders and long legs, in the female version, I'm afraid she's no natural dancer like he was. Perhaps she will turn out to be a good actress? But whatever she ends up doing, I wish her and her brothers the very best.

Sorry people but for a prep school with rich kids I think they all sucked. One of my kids did the cheerleading thing for a city high school and those girls had it all over the bunch in the picture. Those girls looked like they were at a sping social instead of cheerleading.

Oh please... the bitch is speaking PR machine to the maxxx!!! Paris sucked!! The other girls did better. Always the case. The nimrod with the celebrity connections always gets the nepotism response whilst the other chicas are 2-3x better never get a 2nd look. Besides, the lame ass Eagles suck. Isnt the Dallas Cowboys supposed to be the supremo when it comes to NFL cheerleaders anyway?? They aint callin Paris... point blank! #TRUTH!!
