Mascot and Cheerleaders

The official Dallas Cowboys’ mascot is Rowdy, a typical character dressed up like a cowboy with the signature hat, boots, and handkerchief around the neck. He also wears a #00 Cowboys’ uniform.

The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders (DCC), also known as “America’s Girls,” is one of the most recognizable cheerleading squads in the NFL. They have been with the Cowboys since the franchises’ beginning, but it was not until 1972 that they became official dancers/cheerleaders as they were first just sideline models. The blue and white trademarked uniform has remained largely unchanged throughout the years and consists of a blouse, vest, shorts, boots, and hand pom-poms. Over the years, the squad has made TV show appearances, entertained our troops stationed abroad, and been involved in various charities such as the Make A Wish Foundation. Thirty-six girls are selected every year to join the squad after surviving a lengthy audition process. Each girl must be 18 years or older, a college student or employed, and live in the nearby area. A select number are then chosen to participate in the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Show Group, an exclusive entertainment squad that performs its show “America & Her Music” at corporate events and national conventions.
