Erin, Jacksonville ROAR
A cheerleader with the ROAR is getting international attention.

Erin Carlisle made the pages of the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

It's the first time ever that NFL Cheerleaders have been featured in the magazine. Carlisle is one of 12 cheerleaders profiled in the pages of one of the most sought after magazines on the planet.

The graduate of Bishop Kenny says it's a dream come true.

"All the girls are really excited, they're really supportive," said Carlisle.

"They're excited that our face is out there now. We're a baby squad, we're a baby team and now we're getting the national attention."

Carlisle is a model and a dancer.

She's been with the ROAR for two years.

She's studying to be a court stenographer.

But she hopes the SI gig opens more doors.

She also says her family and boyfriend are excited and supportive of her modeling achievement.
