Georgia Joker Inducted into ESPN Fan Hall of Fame

Pierce Wallace, aka the Georgia Joker, has officially been inducted into the ESPN Fan Hall of Fame.

Wallace and two other winners, Barbara Rust and “The Sign Lady;” Canaan Sandy, were inducted at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut on Thursday, May 29, 2014. The three winners also had their names engraved above three stadium chairs on the lawn at ESPN.

Pierce Wallace, “The Georgia Joker” is a lifelong Georgia Bulldogs fan, who touts his recognizable bright green wig and painted face at every single Bulldogs football game – both home and away. Wallace is currently a freshman at University of Georgia, and can be found among members of Spike Squad, a group of intense UGA fans, in section 109 at football home games.

The ESPN Fan Hall of Fame was created in 2012 and highlights fans with compelling stories and extreme loyalty and dedication to the teams they love. The first three members were inducted into the hall on Sept. 19, 2012.

The Georgia Joker, currently a freshman at UGA, can be found in the middle of the UGA Spike Squad in section 109 at Georgia football home games. He also makes the road trips, too.
