Nick Saban goes all out for the University of Alabama on the football field, but Greg Byrne shows his loyalty toward the program behind the scenes.

In his fourth season as an athletic director, he is providing the fans and student-athletes with a much more appealing Bryant-Denny Stadium for home games. When it comes to the players, the renovations started with the locker room.

According to a video from the Crimson Tide’s Twitter account, the locker room got a full upgrade.

Whether it was new name plates, shiny fixtures on the ceiling, graphics of former players or other things needed to make it stand out, Byrne did not waste any expense in making sure the team looks good. For those who played little league, junior varsity or varsity football, there is an old saying that goes “when you look good, you play good.”

Not only does Byrne see this for the locker room, but also the Walk of Champions too.

He posted a brand new look on it as well, enticing fans to check it out on Saturday.

Alabama will face Texas A&M on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. for its home opener.
