Hilltop High School's football team is 2-0 and ready to play rivals Chula Vista at 7 p.m. Friday night.
“Our team’s been working really hard this whole off season and during season so I think we’re ready for the game,” said Lancers football player David Vasquez.
On Thursday, students from the school's band, student council, soccer team, water polo team, volleyball team and cheer squad turned out to be on live television with NBC 7.
The teenagers were up and ready to go before dawn to show school spirit.
Then, on Friday, the Spartans answered with a pep rally that was rockin' in the early morning hours.
Students from cross-country, field hockey, football, band, dance and cheer squads pumped up the gym at Chula Vista High School starting before the sunrise.
The game will be at Chula Vista High School on 4th Avenue on Friday, Sept. 13.
