A group of former University of Michigan cheerleaders recently got a chance to relive their glory days. The squad, comprised of cheerleaders from the 70s, 50s and even the 40s was recently inducted into the Cheerleading Alumni Association.

As part of the honor, members get to help pump up the crowd during each and every homecoming game.

They got their first chance this past Saturday.

A few of these male cheerleaders were on the sidelines even before the school's female squad even existed.
