Tampa and Kansas City aren't just challenging each other on the football field. Local schools are also getting in on the action.
Students at St. Elizabeth Catholic School in Kansas City, Missouri are throwing down a "chief" of a challenge.
The young Kansas City Chiefs fans made a music video challenging their counterparts at St. Paul Catholic School in St. Petersburg to show their Tampa Bay Buccaneers pride.
The challenge was accepted.
"I think it's awesome because we get to celebrate the Bucs going to the Super Bowl and how we've come this far, and I just think it's cool," said David Koscho, 12, a sixth-grader at St. Paul Catholic School.
The students wore Bucs jerseys and waved signs as school staff recorded a video.
One of the student organizers, seventh-grader Kinsley Spoor, called it a lesson in creativity.
"We're trying to put it together so the transitions are smooth when we throw the football and with the songs sliding into each other and match it to what they're doing, " she explained about the video. "It also shows how free the students feel when they're doing this. We haven't been able to do a lot of things because of COVID so it's just really nice to do this."
Part of the challenge also involved a community service project.
Both schools will be collecting cans of soup to give to local food banks in their community.
"Even though we're rivals, together we're collecting soup cans and we're calling it the Soup-er Bowl, and together we can feed the hungry," said Genny Callier, Principal of St. Paul Catholic School. "It really shows how even rivals can come together to do something good for the community. We are using this to teach the children good sportsmanship and how to be friends with everyone."
Several Buccaneers players recorded a video for the local students to include.
"Thank you for the support St. Paul School. You guys rock," they said.
If the Buccaneers win the game, St. Elizabeth Catholic School will be sending students here Kansas City Barbque and if the Chiefs win, St. Paul Catholic School will be sending students in Kansas City a pirates treasure chest filled with beads and Florida oranges.
