LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

At Patt Burton's age, there is a lot to celebrate. But on Friday, Burton was celebrating one thing in particular. 

"Woo hoo, put some pep in your step!", she said. "We are excited, we are super duper excited!".

Burton, isn't the only one super duper excited about the Raiders, and their upcoming move to Las Vegas. She served as the head cheerleader in a pep rally for the Raiders.

"Raiders, Raiders, silver and black! Welcome to Las Vegas, we got your back!" she chanted. 

The Raiders rally was held at 'Nifty after Fifty,' a senior workout facility. 

"People think football is for the young or middle-aged, but some of these people have been football fans forever," Mark Sandez said of his senior clients. 

On Friday, these seniors worked out their excitement for the Raiders, a move many have been waiting to see for decades.
