ATHENS, Ga. -- In a sea of red and black, he's the one in the bright green wig. Now, the Georgia Joker will have a spot in ESPN's Fan Hall of Fame.
Pierce Wallace is only a freshman at the University of Georgia, "But I've been a fan my whole life," he told 11Alive's Julie Wolfe. "I knew this was the school I was going to attend. So, when I got accepted to Georgia, I wanted to give back."
He joined the Spike Squad, a group of intense fans that attend all UGA sporting events. They are most visible in section 109 of Sanford Stadium during football games. Wallace said the Georgia Joker character gained instant attention. "I was dressed like the joker for the first game against South Carolina. ESPN took a photo and tweeted it, and that's where it started."
