The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading squad has offered Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, a spot on their team.

TMZ reports the Eagle's director of cheerleading, Barbara Zaun viewed footage of Paris cheering for her high school's basketball team and liked what she saw.

"We thought that she had a lot of poise, confidence, and enthusiasm in her cheer performance," Zaun told TMZ adding, "Paris has that 'wow factor' that makes a great cheerleader."

Though Paris,14, is not technically eligible to join the team right now -- the Eagles require members to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma -- Zaun is eager to have the King of Pop's daughter on her squad when she's old enough.

"She is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges, she said. "We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!"

Here's a video of Paris cheering for the basketball team at Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
