8. Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins cheerleaders were founded in 1962. They have seen numerous luminaries pass through their ranks, including 2012 Miss District of Columbia Monique Thompkins, 2007 Miss Maryland Michae Holloman and Maureen Gardner, wife of Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

"These beautiful ladies cheering in the nation's capital are known for showing support for our armed forces and honoring our veterans," Crawford-Carnegie said. "They also have one of the largest and strongest Alumni Cheerleader groups in the league."
