2013 LSU commit Tevin Lawson has already been to every home game this season, and this Saturday's contest against Alabama won't be any different.
The three-star defensive line prospect will make the short drive from his home in Denham Springs and watch the Tigers take on the Tide.
"Hopefully we can come out with a win, but they're a tough team," Lawson said. "It's going to be real hyped. Everyone will be screaming. It's going to be a tough match for LSU, but I believe they can come out with the win.
"It's definitely not going to be a high-scoring game. I'm predicting 14-7, LSU."
Lawson said he's still uncertain where on the line he will play at LSU, but said he assumes he'll play defensive tackle. He said he makes sure to watch his future teammates in the trenches to pick up pointers during the game.
"I keep an eye on everything, but I mostly try to look at the D-Line," Lawson said. "See if I can learn anything from them, so I can be ready when I come in."
Lawson said he's currently trying to add weight to his 6-foot-5, 270-pound frame. And with as many as six LSU defensive linemen possibly departing after this season, Lawson hopes to compete for a spot in the rotation as a freshman.
He said part of making that happen comes from building relationships with the current players.
"I'm trying to make friends with the linemen that are already there and the guys that are coming," Lawson said.
Lawson's Denham Springs team meets Zachary in a battle for second place in District 4-5A. The Yellow Jackets have clinched a spot in the playoffs, and Lawson said he could face 5A powerhouse West Monroe if they defeat Zachary this weekend.
"They're a very good team," Lawson said. "But we have the talent to win."
