History edit

The squad was established in 1975 as the Derrick Dolls, and changed to the current name when the Titans (then known as the Oilers) moved to Tennessee.[2] The group currently has 25 cheerleaders.[3] The squad also makes USO trips, with the members making trips to Kuwait[4] and Diego Garcia for their All-Star Super Bowl Tour.[5] The squad holds auditions at Baptist Sports Park.[6] Other than performances on the field, the squad also has made appearances on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "The Dr. Oz Show". Annually, the squad makes a swimsuit calendar, and one that's available to download onto tablets and smartphones.[7] The squad also makes appearances off the field.[8]

The Titans have used male cheerleaders in their history multiple times, from 1999-2003, and again from 2019 to the present. The men were originally called "yell leaders," with a similar role to collegiate cheerleading, and the high-risk stunting returned in 2019.
