Name: Lilly Cox

Age: 23rd birthday is Wednesday

Resides: Bremerton

Schools: Bremerton High School and Willamette University in Salem, Ore.

Occupation: Human-resources specialist at Naval Base Kitsap

Favorite Seahawk: Richard Sherman (“I love his story, and that he gets so much respect from other teams that they don’t even throw his direction. He’s a very interesting character to watch and very inspirational to me.”)

12th fan for: More than 10 years.

Seahawks story: “I’ve been a Seahawks fan for as long as I can remember, and a diehard fan since 2004. That’s when I was finally old enough to understand football a little better and my family got season tickets.”

Memorable Seahawk moment: Seattle beat the Packers 34-24 on “Monday Night Football”, on Nov. 27, 2006 in Seattle. “It started snowing and it was one of the coolest Seahawks games in history, next to winning the Super Bowl. … It was freezing cold but we were all warm because we were on our feet the entire time.”

Fast facts: Loves getting her picture taken with Wilson, the 12th Pony, a Shetland therapy pony with a blue-green mane, blue tail and 12th man blanket outside of CenturyLink on game days. …  Lilly’s whole family is into the Hawks. “We always go to games together. We have  four season tickets, and there are five of us, so we always fight over who gets to go.”

Prediction: Seahawks, 37-14. “Washington’s inconsistent offense is going against the LOB (Legion of Boom). I don’t see that as a fair matchup.”

Last game:  Staci Petersen, 9, of Anchorage, Alaska, foresaw a Seahawks victory, but her 38-24 prediction wasn’t as close to the 26-20 overtime result as Times reporter Bob Condotta, who predicted a 27-21 win. 12th Fans of the Week are 1-1-1 in the first three games.
