Introducing the Eagles Cheerleaders Throwback Uniforms 

Posted by James at 1:07 AM ET

This year is the Philadelphia Eagles 75th season in the NFL. As part of the celebration, the team will be wearing throwback uniforms when they take the field Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

To build excitement Thursday night/Friday morning the Eagles Pro Shop had a "Midnight Madness" event where fans had an opportunity to buy throwback jerseys prior to Sunday's game.

As you can see the players won't be the only ones wearing the throwback colors. Eagles Cheerleaders Katheryn and Rachel sport the new blue and yellow uniforms.

First-year Cheerleader Katheryn is an Accounting and Finance major at Villanova University.

Rachel, Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleader
First year Cheerleader and Army ROTC Cadet Rachel lists "Completing ranger challenge competition and crossing the finish line after a 10K ruck run with my team" as the coolest experience of her life. What's a ruck run, you ask? Rachel explained that it involves carrying all of your gear (40-80 pounds) in a rucksack on your back while in full uniform.

Very cool, indeed!
