Paris Jackson is dancing to her own tune as a cheerleader for her southern California high school varsity squad.

The 14-year-old daughter of late music legend Michael Jackson is no stranger to the limelight and has built up her own solid fanbase – drawing the attention of Barbara Zaun, the Philadelphia Eagles’ director of cheerleading.

Zaun reportedly recognized Jackson’s talent and is interested in having the teen join the team one day.

However, the NFL requires wannabe cheerleaders earn a high school diploma and be at least 18 years of age, which leaves Jackson having to wait a few years before joining the big leagues.
