You may not know the name Steve Beckholt, but if you've watched a Texans game on TV you've seen him.
The cameras love to catch him being what he is -- the ultimate Texans fan.
The Tomball dude has a wide array of gear, an endless fountain of enthusiasm, an understanding wife and an ability to tailgate regularly with the Battle Red Freaks, which takes some doing.
It may seem like a simple life when caught in the quick blast of a post-sack scream from the stands, but being the self-dubbed Ultimate Fan takes some work.

Our Norma Vasquez followed Beckholt around as he made his gameday preparations before the Texans took on Miami in the season opener, and made this video of what went on.
As you can tell, it's not a job that just anyone can do.
