Have you checked out the Ridgeway High School football team’s new NFL commercial? That’s right. The team is featured in the “We Ready” promotional spot.
You can see the team singing, then dancing, as the music continues underneath a variety of images and video.
Local 24 reached out to the NFL, who sent us this statement:
With the playoffs approaching, the NFL sought to create a promotional spot that captures the raw emotion and magnitude of the postseason following what was an extraordinary, record-breaking season. The NFL rallied to find inspiration and was incredibly moved by the pregame chant of the Ridgeway High School football team. Their chant captures what the playoffs are all about, and showcases the connection between the community and the sport of football. Everyone featured in the clip from the Ridgeway team was aware of ‘We Ready’ being used in this promotional spot, school personnel approved of it, and all are excited about it.
Shelby County Schools superintendent Dorsey Hopson tweeted out, “I see you Ridgeway! We Ready! #iBelieveInSCS #SCSstudentsShineBright”
