Senior Day adds another Crimson chapter for Walk-On Jackson Roby

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

Claire was raised the daughter of Crimson Tide football legend Billy Neighbors but married an Auburn grad, Bubba Robby. Because she didn’t want maroon stuff hanging around her house, to keep it fair, she didn’t decorate with Alabama stuff either. But when her eldest son, Jackson, was interested in an Alabama football helmet as a young boy, she didn’t complain.

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