Your 2006 All-Hairmericans

It's awards season, and while I generally disagree with handing out awards before the postsesason, the All-Hairmerican is pretty much won or lost during the regular season, as I can't really remember a time when someone came from off the radar with an awesome hairdo for their bowl game. Then again, it migh be a cool motivational strategy to have your team entire run out of the tunnel with dreadlock wigs underneath their helmets. That might work better than green jerseys.

Anyway, thanks to all my readers who submitted their candidates this year and pointed out some under-the-radar Hairmericans. Big props to Nick at WTTO who compiled the High School Bad Hair Awards. Nick is doing the yeoman's work of being the Tom Lemming of All-Hairmericans, tirelessly scouting the prep school ranks for future standouts. As you can see, there's a lot of potential for the class of '11, but there's no such thing as a sure thing. Injuries, stress-induced allopecia, and head-shaving hazing will likely keep many of these budding stars from reaching their full All-Hairmerican potential in their college careers.

I thought Fabio was too pretty for football, but I guess the ladies love a tight end?

I see a theme here, Pacific Islanders have horrible hair when they grow it out.

Is that Bradley kid from Nebraska for real? He looks like Napoleon Dynamite on roids. That is one crazy looking dude.

And Trent Pupello is a very pretty girl.

Hooray for Philip Wheeler. This makes up for that bogus roughing the passer call in the ND game.

ok, no it doesn't. But still, yay!
