Baseball players are notoriously superstitious and Chiefland High is no exception.
After securing a spot in the state playoffs, several players got what they called “The Bryce Harper hairdo” on the day of the district championship game — a battle between the CHS Indians and Baldwin Indians.
It’s a type of “faux hawk” with the sides cut closely and the top spiked up.
“I got mine about two weeks ago when I started slumping,” said senior Cole Parks. “I needed something to get me out of it, so I tried (the haircut).
“We wanted to do something kind of crazy if we made the playoffs and so we all did it.”
Players won’t be the only ones sporting the new do around town. Assistant coach Chad Brock promised players he would get one as well if they won the district tourney, which they did with a 12-2, mercy-rule victory against Baldwin in Lake Butler. Brock already was trying to get fellow assistant Josh Wasson to join him in the barber’s chair.
