Weber State players shave heads to support coach's wife

  Weber State coach Jay Hill gets his hair removed by his wife, Sara.

Weber State has come together in a beautiful way, with its players all shaving their heads in solidarity with Sara Hill, the wife of head coach Jay Hill.

After Sara was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the Hills held a party at their house to show support for her as she shaved her head in advance of beginning chemotherapy. But it wasn’t enough for the Weber State players to just be there to cheer Sara on; they then sat down in the chair after she finished and each got their heads shaved, as well.

Finally, Jay sat down and allowed his wife to take off all of his hair to finish the job. By the end of the afternoon, there was neither a hair follicle nor a dry eye remaining.

Check out the video below that showcases the true family that a football team can be.
