KENNEWICK, WA- The Seahawks may play on Sunday, but part of that pre-game routine always includes a visit to the barber. In this case, it's one from our town.

NBC Right Now talked exclusively with Mark Baysinger, "The Seahawks Barber".

Since he was born, Mark Baysinger says he remembers wearing Jim Zorn jersey's in his hometown of Sunnyside. But now, he calls some of the most famous hawks players, his friends.

"My family is a 12th man family and it's, you know, I have to harness my fan-dom most of the time but to be able to sit back and watch them, just enjoy this", explained Baysinger.

Baysinger claims he is, "Just the barber", but this lifelong fan now has the NFL network filming around him in his Kennewick barber shop.

Baysinger said it all started on Instagram, when Brandon Browner posted about needing a hair cut.

Browner said, "He needed a haircut and so, shoot, I remember seeing that and my whole body went hot. I remember looking at like, is this for real?". 

Real it was indeed, he met Browner and Richard Sherman at a local pub during the 12th man tour. Ever since, players like Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson, and Kam Chancellor get their cuts "on the mark".

"In the beginning of the season, when Russell was getting his hair cut it was a routine. He would come to my room after meetings and bible study and he would come get a haircut", explained Baysinger.

But besides the Seahawks success, the trophies for his team and the relationships he has created, he loves to watch his family enjoy the team he has always loved.

"My son, he was at training camp this year. All the players came up to him and we were able to go on the field. For him to be able to experience that, I mean, even though it doesn't sink in for him, what it really is, that was bigger than the Super Bowl for me. My kids are my Super Bowl", said Baysinger.

Baysinger hopes one day soon he will be able to open up a shop in Seattle, but for now cutting 30 Seahawks players hair, is not too bad at all.
