Throughout Nick Saban’s tenure in Tuscaloosa, we’ve seen fans from many programs proudly displaying signs that read “We Want Bama” in bold lettering.
It’s truly a sign of respect — as Alabama has been the proverbial king of college football over the course of the past seven seasons. These exuberant supporters hope to see their program take on the challenge of facing the best.
The fans — and most likely students — of one Texas high school program also wants a crack at Saban’s team:

Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas has been a perennial powerhouse in the state for quite sometime. It’s churned out prospects to the college game on a regular basis — including some who’ve played very well (Todd Reesing, Baker Mayfield, Garrett Gilbert).
In 2016, Lake Travis just won the 6A Division 1 title — besting The Woodlands by a sizable margin. They lost one game this entire year, which was the season opener to Judson.
The Cavaliers may have some problems against Alabama. For one, they don’t have a single player over 300 pounds on their roster.
Secondly…it’s Alabama. Nothing else really needs to be said.
