Several Bucs shave heads to support fight against pediatric cancer


Last week, we pointed out that Buccaneers G.M. Mark Dominik and others would shave their heads today, June 7, to support the fight against pediatric cancer.

The others were, according to the Tampa Tribune, quarterback Josh Freeman, receiver Mike Williams, linebacker Mason Foster, kicker Connor Barth, and safety Ahmad Black.

“I’m long overdue for a haircut and there’s no better feeling than to get your hair cut to help kids who are battling cancer,’’ Freeman said.  “It makes you feel awesome.  It’s a great deal.’’

Recently, several Bears did the same thing, in support of six-year-old Gavin Waterman.

It’s a great gesture.  Given the crazy things veterans do to the hair of rookies in training camp, it’s great to see players willing to shed their own hair in support of an important cause.
