Nathan Adrian Raises 12th Man Flag

Despite the fact that Nathan Adrian has been based out of Cal-Berkeley for quite some time, there is no doubt about where his allegiance lies when it comes to his football teams. Despite the fact he has been swimming at Berkeley since 2006 — first for Cal’s varsity team, and more recently as part of their post-graduate group which also includes Natalie Coughlin and Anthony Ervin — he has spurned the local San Francisco 49ers in favor of his hometown team.

The Bremerton, Washington native is a die-hard Seattle Seahawks fan, and on their game on December 23rd against the Arizona Cardinals, Adrian was bestowed with the honor of raising the 12th man flag at Century Link Stadium.




Unfortunately for Adrian, his team would lose 17-10 to the Cardinals.
