This Peach County High School football super fan hasn't missed a game in 44 years

For 44 years, Tim Wilson has not missed a game.

MACON — The Peach County Trojans will be heading up I-75 Tuesday to take the field at the Mercedes Benz stadium and one Peach County super fan will be with them as well.

"Kinda like people going hunting and fishing, my passion is going to Peach County High School football and basketball games," Tim Wilson said.

When it comes to Peach County sports, Wilson does not play.

"I have not missed a football game in 44 years," Wilson said.

The 1981 Peach County High School graduate is serious about it too.

"[Tuesday] will make 530 consecutive games," Wilson said.

He attends most of the games wearing his shirt with Trojan buttons, getting gifts along the way.

Like for his 400th consecutive games, the Trojans presented him with a football helmet signed by members of the 2009 team.

"I also feel privileged to be able to have supported our school, because I am a Trojan," Wilson said.

Going into the championship game, Wilson is forgetting the past and traveling to Atlanta with a win on his mind.

"We can't worry about last year, we have to worry about this year," Wilson said. "I feel really good about our opportunities to win because I feel like this team is on a mission."

It's a mission he says pays off for student athletes in Peach County.

"I've come to realize that even though I support Peach County High school that I'm also supporting young people in other communities because when we go, we are supporting all young people doing something worthwhile," he said.

It's a reward that will keep him coming out.

"I know at some point in time it will come to an end, but that time has not come," he said.

His wife always travels along with him to the games, so it has become a family tradition the whole family supports.
