Alabama Super Fan: Meet 'SuperBama'

DEATSVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

With just a few days left before the Iron Bowl, WSFA 12 News went in search of the biggest Auburn and Alabama fans.

Meet Kevin Seamon, or as he's better known among University of Alabama fans, SuperBama!

Seamon isn't afraid to let his Tide Pride show and is in the second year of dressing up as SuperBama. His costume includes a cape with championship patches.

It started out as a challenge from a friend, who said Seamon wouldn't dress up. But he did, and SuperBama has developed quite a following. He even has his own Facebook page with more than 1,000 followers.

Seamon has been following the Tide for more than 20 years. His devotion to the Tide started while watching the 1985 Iron Bowl with his father who is also a big Alabama fan.

That was the last game he watched with his dad before he died, making it the most memorable for Kevin. He says it was more special than the championship games.

Seamon is looking forward to this year's Iron Bowl. He believes it will be a good game but obviously thinks the Tide will come out on top.

Coming up at 6, WSFA 12 News anchor Sally Pitts talks with SuperBama.
