What is a fan?

David Kosa, Math teacher:

“When I was younger, I grew up liking sports [such as] football, basketball, and baseball, so it’s nice to be identified with something that you like… it’s just a great atmosphere to be a part of.”

Madison Richmond, Class of 2018:

“Being a fan is showing a lot of team spirit and showing loyalty to a team. You’re really involved with them, and you’re really happy and peppy when [they] win.”

Thomas Martin, Class of 2017

[It means] to support a team [that] generally comes from where you’re from or where your family’s from … [being a fan] can be linked to where you’re born or where you live.
