Judy Trammell, head choreographer for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, said her 36-member troupe doesn't just love being cheerleaders.
"We live and die by the Cowboys every year. No matter what they do on the field, they are winners in our eyes," said Trammell, who has been head choreographer since 1991. "You can't help become so attached to them. They are a part of our lives. But I'm not going to lie: We want to go to the Super Bowl."
On Friday, Country Music Television will broadcast the start of the seventh season of "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team" at 8 p.m. CT.
Trammell, director Kelli McGonagill Finglass and vice president Charlotte Jones will spend 11 episodes narrowing the field as it heads to the first performance at Cowboys Stadium and an appearance in the swimsuit calendar.
