Professional Cheerleader/Grandmother 

Posted by James at 10:15 AM ET

I think we might have a winner in the search for the Cheerleader who had the greatest time off between squads. A reader points me to the story of Kathy Ferrin, who was a Los Angeles Raiderette for the 1986-87 season and then 17 seasons later was an Oakland Raiderette for the 2003-04 season. On top of that Kathy became a grandmother during the 2003-04 season, so she just might be the only professional cheerleader/grandmother ever!

And one more Raiderette note: there are a couple more familiar faces on the new 2007-08 squad.

Sara, SF 49ers Gold RushSara, SF 49ers Gold Rush
Sara joins the Raiderettes after two seasons cheering with the San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush. Her Gold Rush bio page says that she is a full-time law student.

Ashley, Raiderette
Ashley R. was a Raiderette for the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons and is back again after a year off. (Still looking for a shot of her in uniform)
