The Dallas Cowboys are preparing for the NFL season in every way possible during the lockout, including putting together the 2011 cheerleading squad. Hey man, they need to be ready.

Watch a video of these wannabe-cheerleaders trying to impress with their gyrations below. (You can also check out photos from the tryout here.)
