Senior Day adds another crimson chapter for Walk-On Jackson Roby – Update Alaba

The first two songs Claire Roby learned as a child were “Jesus Loves Me” and “Yea, Alabama,” and not in that order.

Claire grew up the daughter of Crimson Tide football legend Billy Neighbors, but married Auburn graduate Bubba Robby. Since she didn’t want Auburn stuff hanging in her house, to be fair, she didn’t decorate herself with Alabama stuff either. But when her oldest son, Jackson, gravitated toward a football helmet at Alabama as a toddler, she didn’t complain.

More than a decade later, Jackson is preparing for his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium as an Alabama football player with the Iron Bowl against Auburn this Saturday. He continued the legacy of champions while forging his own path with the Crimson Tide as an offensive lineman over the past five years.
