DENVER -- They call it Broncos Country because it's a big fan group, and a large fan group could use an Army to help keep them in line. Well that's where the Butt family comes in; they want to bring the first ever Butt Army to Denver to support their son Jake Butt, who is a tight end for the Broncos.

The Butt family has become known for the fun names they put on the back on their football jersies, all revolving around their last name Butt. It started when Jake Butt played football at the University of Michigan. Some of the original members in the Butt Army include Meg Lally and Rob Butt, also known as Mama Butt and Head Butt.

Some other friends and family jersey names include the following: I like Big Butt, Black Butt, Tiny Butt, New Butt Lil Butt, Mama Booty, There's a Butt, Kick Butt, Nice Butt etc.

So now they are hoping Broncos fans catch on and start to make it their own.

Denver7 Sports Anchor Alison Mastrangelo had a chance to catch up with Mama Butt and Head Butt at the Raiders game on Sunday and you can watch the story here.
