To keep a college football team running, it takes lots of people: coaches, physical therapists, boosters, and maybe even a team psychologist. To keep players looking sharp underneath the helmets, there’s the team barber. Or as is the case for the UAB Blazers football team, make that barbers.

Inside the team’s new locker room, there’s a barber pole. Once the chair arrives, that corner of the locker room will become the team’s barbershop. Linebacker Tevin Crews and Michael Turner, a quarterback, know how to use scissors and clippers. They say between classes and practice, players don’t have a lot of time for haircuts. Having it done in-house by one of their own means players save time and money.
