INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Colts invited Ella Whistler to become an NFL cheerleader for a day during Sunday’s game at Lucas Oil.

The 8th grader performed a routine with the Colts cheer team between the first and second quarters.

Earlier in the game, she sang The National Anthem along with Noblesville West’s choir.

“I get to do a lot of different things now because of this and I think it’s really cool to have this experience a life-time experience that no-one ever really gets to do,” Ella Whistler said.

The Colts are trying to get above .500 for the first time since Nov. 2015.  They travel to Jacksonville next week. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. on CBS4.
