One Yakima Family Is Taking Their 12th Man Pride To A New Level

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- People across the state are preparing for the Seahawk's trip to the Super Bowl, but one Yakima family is taking it to a whole new level.  

The Mataia family loves the Seahawks, but do you know many people who would drive 20 plus hours to see them play? Well this family and a few of their close friends are making the journey.

Liberty Mataia told us she's been a fan since the King Dome days and even has an old piece of concrete from the stadium before it was demolished, so this trip is very important to them.

“It means a lot it means that 6 months pregnant I'm willing to go drive 20 plus hours to see our Seahawks play and support them,” Liberty told KNDO.

We caught up with them right before their caravan took off Thursday night, they told us they'll be driving straight through so they can make it in time for all the pre-game festivities and tailgating.

They're hoping for a win, but they said they're just excited to see their team play, regardless of the outcome.
