He may live in Patriot country, but this 10-year-old Chiefs fan isn't backing down

WINCHESTER, Mass. (CBS) -- It's not always fair to be singled out in school, but some kids just bring it upon themselves - like 10-year-old Christopher Sprague.


"Because I am like the only one who likes the Chiefs and everyone likes the Patriots," he explains.

That's right. The innocent looking 5th-grader at Ambrose Elementary School, in Winchester, Massachusetts, is a Kansas City Chiefs fan. He's proud of his team and courageously wears his jersey in enemy territory - the playground.

Christopher is no fair-weather fan either. Both his parents are Chiefs fans and mom was born in the Sunflower State.

"It's like a family and family oriented town and invested in it like that," Ali Sprague explained.

Ali's husband, Dylan, plans to attend Sunday's AFC Championship game. He's been a fan for more than 20 years and has kept every ticket stub.

"It's been a long time and we are ready for New England. This is a team we lost to and Arrowhead Stadium is one loud place," he says.

Christopher wears his jersey every time the Chiefs win but this week he's worn it every day not only to surprise and annoy his classmates but to let him know that he's taking no prisoners.

On Sunday, he'll find out if he gets to wear that jersey on Monday.

The game kicks off this Sunday at 5:40 p.m. at WIBW-TV.
