Buckhead preschoolers hold pint-sized pep rally

ATLANTA -

Fans of all ages are excited about Sunday's big game and a chance for the Falcons to go to the Super Bowl.

Preschoolers at Buckhead Preparatory Preschool held a pint-sized pep rally on Friday.

Parents dressed up their kids in Falcons colors, jerseys and even cheerleading outfits.

"My husband and I are season ticket holders. So we love the Falcons. My husband will be there on Sunday. Looking forward to the big game," said Ashley Witzigreuter.

This is the second Falcons celebration at Buckhead Prep.

Teacher Kirsten Patterson admits that her classes have been a little chaotic this week with all the excitement over Sunday's game, but they're hoping to do it all over again.

"We're so excited about the Falcons perhaps getting a chance to play for the Super Bowl. We're hoping we're going to have one more pep rally. This one was exciting, but we're hoping we get one more chance to really blow it out," said Patterson.

Misae Okada is from japan. She didn't know about football or the falcons before moving to Atlanta. Now her 5-year-old son Toji wears a Matt Ryan jersey.

It's a Falcons family affair at Buckhead Prep because both a current and retired Falcon player have little one enrolled at the school.

Buckhead Preparatory Preschool will hold another Falcons pep rally and fun day if when Atlanta makes it to the Super Bowl.
