Oct. 9, 2012. It’s no secret that Appalachian State University has some of the best football fans around. This week, however, three of photographer David Scearce’s fan photos made the Sports Illustrated “College Football Superfans” top 25 photos of the week. 

In addition to one of the photos being the No. 1 picture in the slide show, more ASU fan shots can be seen at No. 5 and No. 24.

The star of Scearce’s No. 1 photo is a mystery man on Sports Illustrated as he is showing off some creative grooming, but the High Country Press’ Debbie Carter was able to snap a photo of the “superfan” from the front. 

We here at High Country Press are well known for our “12th Man Fan Photos” we upload on every Monday following a home football game. When three out of Sports Illustrated’s top 25 are ASU fans, it just goes to show why we love showing off their enthusiasm.
