Kyle is originally from New Hampshire but has been studying at the University of the Arts here in town. He made it through the final round of auditions Tuesday night, and you can see him perform with the squad during home games at the Linc during the 2019 Eagles season.

The Eagles aren't the first team to add male cheerleaders, though Kyle is the first on the Eagles. The LA Rams and New Orleans Saints already have male members on each of their squads.

Congrats Kyle! We'll be cheering for you!
