ADS students go viral for their rendition of the Philadelphia Eagles fight song.

As the Philadelphia Eagles advanced further in the NFL playoffs, the entire Archbishop Damiano School rallied behind “The Birds.”

Prior to going up against the Atlanta Falcons in the divisional round playoffs, staff, teachers and students arrived on campus the Friday before, decked out in green and their finest Eagles gear.

In addition, Maureen Simpson’s class delivered a powerful rendition of the Eagles’ official fight song, which was shared by NBC10’s social media and quickly went viral. Between NBC’s two Facebook posts, the video received 108,000 views, 4,000 likes and more than 800 shares.

Finishing the regular season with a record of 13 –3, the Philadelphia Eagles were considered the top SuperBowl contenders during the regular season, prior to their starting quarterback suffering a season-ending injury.

However, with the entire Greater Philadelphia region behind them, including everyone at SJOGCS, the Eagles advanced to the conference championship, after beating the Falcons 15 –10.
