The young San Jose Elementary student cheered on her favorite team during the Falcons' loss to Lakewood.

On a night when there was very little cheer about, in a 40-11 loss to Lakewood, Amy Swiatek continued to wave her pom-poms and cheer on her favorite team.

Amy, 10, is a fifth-grade student at and attends all the Falcons games with her dad.

"My dad brought me to the game so we could spend time together and have fun," she remarked excitedly. 

Her father Matt Swiatek, a 1998 Dunedin High School graduate, played cornerback for three years.

Amy cheers no matter what the score because she knows that the Falcons believe in themselves. 

"When I cheer with the cheerleaders, I know that the players can stay positive within themselves and could win the game," she said.

When Amy was informed that she had been selected as the Patch fan of the week, the young enthusiast added, "I knew that one day I would be as famous as ."
