Gold Medalist Simone Biles Cheers for the Houston Texans Literally

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles can add NFL cheerleader to her resume.

The gymnast made her debut as an honorary Houston Texans cheerleader Sunday.

Simone Biles Makes Debut as Honorary Texans Cheerleader

It all started in November when Biles tweeted -- "honestly how fun would it be to be an NFL cheerleader."

The Twitterverse went crazy suggesting the Houston Texans should make her an honorary cheerleader and they did.

Biles became the team's first honorary cheerleader and got her own pair of red boots and a locker alongside her teammates.

Biles took the field at NRG Stadium with the Texans Cheerleaders in the game against the 49ers and ESPN reports she crushed it.

Fans sure seemed to enjoy seeing the Olympic gold medalist.

She also added a new photo to her portfolio of short / tall photos with a picture with Homefield Advantage Captain former Houston Rocket Hakeem Olajuwo. He stands 7-feet tall compared to Biles' 4-foot-9.

Biles has been a regular fixture on the Houston sports scene, she tumbled her way onto the field at a Texans game two years ago.

She may or may not have been the Astros' lucky charm in the World Series --  you know how that ended, so you be the judge.

And she attended a Houston Rockets game with her boyfriend, gymnast Stacey Ervin.

At the game against the Utah Jazz she even attempted a free throw for the team's "First Shot for Charity."

In heels, she didn't quite make the basket, but the audience was still thrilled and the Rockets won 137-110.

Unfortunately on Sunday, Biles' lucky charm status ran out, the Texans lost to the 49ers 16-26.
