WALLA WALLA, WA - Seeing the Seahawks go to the Super Bowl two years in a row is a dream come true to plenty of fans. For some locals the dreams keep coming true.

Devon Adams is part of Garrison Middle School's autism program in Walla Walla. He recently had the experience of a lifetime.

"When I was little I just used to hambone, hambone, hambone, hambone, hambone, hambone and that was all I just did,” said the 7th grader. “I started when I was like 4 years old."

Sometimes the music just drums right through him. Adams is a drummer that loves the Seahawks so when you combine the two? You get a dream come true. He got to play with Blue Thunder (the official Seahawks drumline) at Century Link at the first playoff game.

"Being on the field was (makes happy face)...and then hitting that big old huge 8 foot drum. I ushered out the defense. Oh my god that was so cool man. It felt like I was one of the main...honorary members get to hit that big drum."

He didn't realize his time at the game was only about to get better. Marshawn Lynch who is known for not signing many autographs liked Devon's story so much that he took his jersey...

"He just no questions asked, just walked up...(makes pen clicking sound) done. He signed it. BEAST MODE!"

So of course seeing the Hawks head to the Super Bowl made the experience even better.

"I felt like I was... I was appreciative of that. Oh my god. It was so beautiful."

Devon tells NBC Right Now he has a new dream from this experience. He wants to become a permanent member of the Blue Thunder team and make it his job to play at Century Link for every game.
