WOW! Hello Grandma! Susie Sanchez is here! Sanchez again impressed the judges with her dancing ability, skill and presence later that week — she had been dancing since she was 8, after all — and she can now safely say she is the oldest member of the Raiderettes as well.
So congrats to Susie. Many people give up on their dreams long before they hit 30, no matter if that is a basketball player or doctor or even cheerleader, but it seems she’s kept trying and finally landed it. While it may seem strange, we can all probably learn a lot from the grandmother in Oakland.
But does this make Susie the oldest cheerleader in the NFL? Sadly, no. That honor rests with the Bengals’ Laura Vikmanis, who is 42 and still going strong.
