Die-hard Bucs fan Priscilla Williams, known as "Bucn Beauty" on game days, poses for a portrait outside the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played the Atlanta Falcons in a week one matchup on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016.

St. Petersburg resident Priscilla Williams' dedication to the Buccaneers extends well past Florida's border. She's a season ticket holder at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, but eight games per season doesn't quite cut it for her. Williams, who made it to three road games last year, started off the 2016 season with a trip north to Atlanta for the Bucs' week one victory over the Falcons. She flew solo from Tampa International to Atlanta on Saturday, but knew her community of Buccaneers faithful would be there on game day. Bucs fans passionate enough about their team to follow them on the road enjoy sharing that experience with one another. Williams joined her Bucs family for morning tailgating outside the Georgia Dome before heading in to watch a 31-24 win.

Williams prides herself on wearing a different pirate dress to each Bucs game she attends. Currently she has somewhere around 20. Williams has loved the Bucs since long before she started wearing pirate dresses to games though. After her military family settled in Tampa Bay, she went to Lakewood High in St. Petersburg. During those teen years Williams attended a handful of Buccaneers games and quickly turned into a lifelong fan. "Just being in the atmosphere of Bucs fans got me hooked," she says. "We support them (the players), and they support us." She has plans to watch the Bucs play the Panthers in Carolina and Cowboys in Dallas later this season, and you better believe she won't be missing any games at Raymond James.
