"B-U-L-L-D-O-G-S, we are the Bulldogs, oh yes, and we are the best" is the chant Morrison-Gordon Elementary School students belted out on the side of the Route 56 to support the Athens High School football team.

The students cheered on the football team as the players headed back to school after their lunch at the Athens Country C. 

Students made spirit signs, noise makers, and some even made predictions. 

"I think the Bulldogs are gonna win tonight, and I think it's gonna be a really close game," said Caiden, a fourth-grade student at the school.

Third-grade teacher at Morrison-Gordon Elementary, Mrs. Robin Burrow was just another fan cheering at the elementary schools's spirit rally, but at the championship game in Columbus she will serve a different role — mother of senior quarterback, Joe Burrow. 

Mrs. Burrow said she is humbled and overwhelmed by the amount of support from the Athens community. 

Her son is having an incredible year, but she said win or lose, the championship game will be an emotional experience. 

"Getting this far, we're certainly very proud of them, and I would assume after the game tonight, when it's all over, is when all of the emotions will come flooding out."
