AUSTIN (KXAN) — Things ended in a big dog pile after the Wallkill Mighty Mites couldn’t bust through a banner following a big home-game win, but they had their shot at redemption on the national stage when Jimmy Fallon invited them on The Tonight Show. The tiny football players — even accompanied by their cheerleaders — got their second chance.
The 6- and 7-year-olds finally busted through through a special banner made just for them. The little ones had a surprise of their own for Fallon, taking him a team jersey to show their appreciation.
Gotta love second chances — and cute little kids suited up in football uniforms.
