NFL 2023 Fan of the Year |


NFL Fan of the Year

presented by Captain Morgan


Gregory Brooks

Gregory is a 35-year season ticket holder who has only missed 3 home games…ever! His life, and his family's, revolves around the Lions. He and his wife postponed their honeymoon so they would not miss the opening game at the Silverdome against the Cowboys. The day his daughter was born, he and the doctors made sure to tune into the 1992 Draft to watch the team draft Robert Porcher in the delivery room. The family plans vacations around Lions away games.  

Years ago, he started "Beast Feast" at his weekly tailgate as a way to give back to the community. Each home game, his tailgate crew brings everything needed to pack lunches for those in need around Ford Field. As a group, they pass out the sack lunches. Win or lose on the field, Gregory leaves Ford Field victorious seeing the faces of those he helps each Sunday.
