49ers fan at Seahawks parade identified as teen in needon February 10, 2014 @ 6:38 am (Updated: 12:29 pm - 2/10/14 )
A lone 49ers fan, dressed head-to-toe in red and gold, stood out like a sore thumb in a sea of Seahawk die-hards at Wednesday's Super Bowl parade.
But when photos of his waltz through the 12th Man crowds went viral, the Niners Nation took notice.
Catherine Tate loved what she saw, but she told KING 5 she was a bit surprised by what she learned.
"He's 15, he's a ward of the state, and is homeless, essentially. He lives in shelters," said Tate.
She created a GoFundMe site to raise money for the teen, so he can go to college or use it for another worthwhile cause.
It's already brought in more than $25,000 from Seahawks and 49ers fans.
KIRO Radio's Bob Larson contributed to this report.
