Alabama fans were out late and up early to get their hands on some National Championship swag.
Some fans lined up outside of Academy Sports + Outdoors in the Festival Centre immediately following the win.
“I couldn’t make it,” said Jerome James. “I had to get it tonight. I want to put my hat on with the players at the same time”
Other fans waited until Tuesday morning. Dick’s Sporting Goods in McGowan Park opened early at 6 a.m.
“I had to come first thing in the morning,” said William Gertz. “I picked up three different T-shirts in three different colors.”
Fans we spoke with are excited about the Championship win.
“It was a heck of a game,” said Alan Leonard. “One of the best ones I’ve seen them do in a long time.”
