Age: 9

Resides: Anchorage, Alaska.

School: Fourth-grader at Klatt Elementary school. Her favorite subject is math.

Favorite Seahawk: Marshawn Lynch. “Sometimes I pretend I’m Beast Mode when I run and yell, ‘Beast Mode!'”

12th Man for: Three to five years.

Seahawks story: “My 9th birthday was the Friday before the Super Bowl this last season. Dad got me a Marshawn Lynch (No. 24) jersey for my birthday present. On Super Bowl Sunday I wore my Marshawn Lynch T -shirt under my jersey to give him good luck. I also had my face painted blue with ‘Go Hawks’ in green. I had a great birthday weekend. I hope to go to a Seahawks game this year. It would be so awesome!”

Fast fact: Loves swimming, sledding and fishing, and caught her first King salmon (6.5 pounds) last summer. … Thinks it’s funny when her dad watches a game and “yells at the people on TV. I tell him they can’t hear him. … We have a great time watching the Seahawks games together.”

Prediction: Seahawks, 38-24. “The Seahawks will win. The legend of boom will bring down the doom. Peyton Manning will be running scared and won’t be able to complete the passes – just like in the Super Bowl.”

Last week: 12th Fan Jasper MacSlarrow of Hong Kong whiffed on the Seahawks 30-21 loss at San Diego, but so did four Seattle Times staffers and celebrity picker Margaret Larson.
