Football Players Think Pep Rally Is Over, Then Their Moms Line Up For Epic Dance.

Back in high school, you might remember thinking your mom or dad wasn’t exactly the coolest.

But they no doubt didn’t let that stop them from trying hard — maybe too hard? — to make you think they were one of the “hip ‘rents.” It’s all in the name of love, though. And when parents are just about bursting with pride, they do pretty crazy things. When Steele High School’s football team was heading to the playoffs, the school threw them a big pep rally. Naturally, though, the parents were not about to be left out.

The bleachers in the high school gym are packed as the announcer tells the students some guest performers are about to hit center court. A few moments later, 11 women walk out with matching outfits and white masks on.

After getting into formation, the routine starts, but no one knows who the surprise dancers are still!

They don’t let the attention get to them, though, executing their routine flawlessly.

But just a few moves in, they remove their masks revealing they’re all football moms! A student choreographed the performance and worked with the group of 11 women to get it nailed down. They also brushed up on the moves by watching videos of Silentó’s “Watch Me” and iHeart Memphis’s “Hit The Quan.”

One of the performers, Melissa Fields, admitted to suffering from a major case of the nerves and stage-fright, but appreciated the opportunity “to come out of our comfort zone.”

“If I went to a club right now, I wouldn’t know what to do,” she added. “I went on YouTube and thought ‘Oh no, there is no way we would be able to pull this off.’”

But they did! And in spades.

None of the football players knew their moms were planning this epic surprise, so watching as they come down out of the bleachers to hug their moms was probably worth all that sneaking around and learning moves to become the cool moms.

Watch the group get down in the video below, and share to spread the smiles!
