GREENFIELD — “Over the top.”

“Beyond avid.”

“Yells and screams.”

Those are the terms Brent Lawson’s friends use to describe the manner in which he roots for the University of Alabama football team.

And they might be understatements.

When No. 2-ranked Alabama takes on No. 1 Notre Dame Monday for the college national championship, Lawson will be hosting a party at his home in Greenfield. Since 1985, Lawson has traveled to nearly 40 games across the country to watch his beloved Tide.

But, he’ll be comfortably seated for this game on his favorite couch, with the walls of much of his home adorned with Alabama memorabilia, enjoying Dreamland Barbeque wings, chicken and pork he special ordered from Tuscaloosa. And, as long as the Nick Saban-coached squad wins its third title in four years, all will be right in Lawson’s world.

If they struggle or — perish the thought — lose, residents in the 200 block of Creek Wood Drive might be wise to take cover.
