ALBANY, GA (WALB) - On Saturday night, the Deerfield-Windsor Knights won the Region 3-AAA Championship over the Terrell Academy Eagles.

And they were flanked by a rowdy student section, led by super fan, Mercer Lynn.

Lynn faithfully cheered on the team all season, leading the crowd in chants and new stunts.

His favorite is the roller coaster, which got the fans some attention on Instagram.

Lynn said his goal this season was to get more students to games and help support the team.

"I love watching basketball," said Lynn. "I just love, you know, getting the crowd pumped up. We think it really helps a lot."

Coach Gordy Gruhl said he loved Lynn's energy and called him a rock star.

So much so, the team let him celebrate with the trophy and cut down the final piece of the championship net.
