MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Are you ready for the NFL Playoffs to start?
Even without a local team in this year’s postseason, Mid-South football fans have plenty to be excited about after the NFL released its official promotion commercial ahead of the 2019 playoffs.
Ridgeway High School, located in Memphis, was featured in the 1-minute commercial. It features the school’s football team engaged in a pregame “We Ready” chant.
According to a statement from the NFL, that chant represents what the NFL playoffs are all about:
League officials said everyone who was featured in the clip from Ridgeway was aware of the video being used, and school personnel approved its use.
The playoffs start next week with Wild Card Weekend, and you can see the full commercial below:
