MOBILE, AL (WKRG) — Julio Jones isn’t the only star from our area who will be gracing the field at Super Bowl LI.

Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Jordan Byrd went to Baker High School and Faulker State Community College before moving to Atlanta. This is her rookie season with the team, according to the Falcons website.

Fellow cheerleader Alexandra Giannini is from Orange Beach. She is a registered nurse living in the Atlanta area.

On Sunday, both ladies will be with the Falcons on the field in Houston for Super Bowl LI, where their team is up against the New England Patriots.

Both cheerleaders say their favorite player is Julio Jones, who is from Foley. Byrd, on the Falcons website, lists her mother, Holly, as her hero.

My mom is my hero. She is the most selfless and thoughtful person I have ever met. She has always encouraged me to chase my dreams and believe in myself , and to put others first. My mom has spent her life driving thousands of miles to dance classes and competitions and games and always been MY biggest cheerleader!
