WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa (KCRG) - There was plenty of celebration at the Schaefer house in Williamsburg after the L.A. Rams hit the game-winning field goal to send them to the Super Bowl.

"I jumped around our living room," said 11-year old Tate Schaefer. "I think there might be a crack in our fireplace."

Tate has been going through radiation for a tumor in his brain stem. Austin Blythe, the starting right guard for the Rams and a Williamsburg native, promised Tate if he made it to the Super Bowl, he'd fly him and his family to Atlanta.

"I know he is super excited," said Blythe. "He's a really great kid."

Blythe will be wearing a bracelet that says, Tater Tough. Several sports teams throughout eastern Iowa from grade school to college have also worn the bracelet to show their support for Tate.
