One Arizona Cardinals superfan is headed for enshrinement at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kristi Brown was selected for the Class of 2021 induction into the Ford Hall of Fans, the Hall announced on Friday.

The Peoria native was selected from more than 27,000 fans who entered the Hall of Fame’s contest recognizing NFL fans across the country with outstanding loyalty, passion and character, according to a press release.

The Hall will induct two other superfans as well: Raiders fan Wayne Mabry and Browns fan Ray Prisby.

All three inductees were flown out to Tampa Bay to attend Super Bowl LV.

Much like the pros’ tradition, Brown received a knock on her hotel door from Pro Football Hall of Fame President and CEO David Baker informing her of her win.

Brown, a labor and delivery nurse, was nominated by Cardinals’ legend cornerback Aeneas Williams. She was previously a cheerleader for the team during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and says she attended her first Cardinals game when she was three years old.

Brown, Mabry and Prisby will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during 2021 Enshrinement Weekend in Canton, Ohio.
