Las Vegas has some young fans who are particularly excited about the Raiders moving to the city.

The pint size Raiders football team is looking forward to go from just being a namesake to representing the home team.

"We knew they were coming, so we wanted to have first dibs on it," said DeQua Coleman, coach of the team "So we are the Henderson Las Vegas Raiders -- the one and only Henderson Las Vegas Raiders."

Coach Gino Madino is excited since he's been a Raider fan most of his life.

The young players are also thrilled.

"My dad is a Raider fan and I just like how they play," said Martin Blake.

Madino also thinks it will help inspire the young kids.

"I think its going to give them motivation to play that much harder and go out there and give 110 percent like their role models do," he said.
