DENVER (CBS4) – The crowd auditioning to become members of the next Denver Broncos cheerleading squad on Sunday had one hopeful that definitely stood out.
Sacha Heppel, a Denver man with no apparent experience as a dancer, was out there shaking his hips and giving it his best shot along with about 300 women at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Heppel says he used to have a job standing on a street corner holding a sign advertising a business. It was a job where he used to dance like crazy, and get a lot of attention. On Sunday he showed up at auditions wearing a turquoise shirt and tight fitting black pants.
Broncos Cheerleaders Director Teresa Shear said the judges on Sunday welcomed Heppel’s effort, giving him as much of a chance as any of the women. Like the ladies trying out, Heppel was shown the required turns, leaps, kicks and simple choreography and then performed them in a small group before the judges.
Heppel didn’t make the final cut, but he kept positive, saying he would be back to try again next year.
A quick glance at Heppel’s online resume doesn’t show any experience as a dancer.
While there are plenty of male cheerleaders in college football, there are none employed by the NFL.
The Broncos will hold a second round of auditions on Sunday in Federal Heights at The Performing Arts Complex at PCS.
