Students hope Chiefs see red and gold reflection on the Lombardi

History teacher Matt Dove and Sophomores Mya Taylor and D’Angelo Ramirez stand outside Dove’s classroom posing with their Chiefs gear. They are hopeful for a Chiefs on Sunday.

   The Kansas City Chiefs have the chance to win back to back Super Bowls for the first time, since the early 2000’s. WHS has many Chiefs fans that are rooting for them. 

   “I want the Chiefs to win because I am a die hard fan and love to see them win,” Junior Carter Howell said. 

   This will be Superbowl LVlll (58) and the Chiefs have won three out of the six they’ve been in. 

   There are many ways to become a fan of any sports team, but most people were born into it. The longest-running season ticket holder is Gary Friedman from Kansas City.

   “At 15-years-old, Friedman became a season ticket holder. That was 1963. Fast forward 53 years later, and Friedman is still a season ticket holder and active member of Chiefs Kingdom,” said Kansas City News. 

   “My mom has had season tickets for 23 years now,” said Middle school secretary, Andrea Ferguson. 

    Taylor Swift has been a hot topic this season for the Chiefs. Many of the Chiefs fans have positive and negative feelings about her.

   “She brings more publicity to the Chiefs, but also takes the entire focus of what the Super Bowl is all about, which is the two best teams going at it in the biggest game in all of sports,” sophomore Ryan Fajen said. 

   “I love when it shows Taylor Swift and then everyone that we usually watch the games with goes crazy because my family doesn’t like her and they just start screaming at the TV to put it back on the game because they can’t stand her,” freshman Aleanah Yoder said.   

   In addition to Swift sightings, some students watch the game for other reasons than actual football.

   “The halftime show is always great because I don’t understand football,” freshman Kaylynn Luallen said. 

   Some may think the halftime show is overrated and there is no point to include it. 

   “I wouldn’t say I’m excited for the halftime. The halftimes are always really weird and no one even knows who the person is. They are supposed to be famous but they really aren’t. I mean, last year, I had a vague idea of Rihanna but I don’t listen to her stuff. I don’t even know who the guy this year in the halftime is,” freshman Maya Daughenbaugh said. 

   The Chiefs won the playoff game against the Ravens with the score of 17-10. The game was a very intense game and many people were nervous.

   “I was nervous in the second half because our offense died down and we weren’t able to drive the ball down the field. We punted on pretty much every drive, but our defense stepped up and kept being the dawgs they are,” Howell said. 

  The Chiefs had many advantages that led them to the AFC championship game, including Mahomes, Kelce, and Kansas City’s defense. 

   “The biggest reason they won is because they have Patty Mahomes, but they are a team who has been in the big games before and know how to perform, which is a very big deal when it comes to the playoffs. They also have Big Red (Andy Reid) and Tavis Kelce.” Said Fajen.

“Chiefs defense and our physicality won us both playoff games. We have outcoached both teams severely,” said math teacher, baseball and football coach, Gage Boise.

Kansas City Chiefs fans are very confident for Sunday’s game. 

“You can doubt the Chiefs. You can dislike the Chiefs. You can disrespect the Chiefs. But… you’re gonna have to deal with the Chiefs,” said Voice of the Kingdom, Mitch Holthus.
