The final scores in a few tests of manhood came in today, and the results were pretty grizzly.

Snake River’s Head Football Coach Jeff Dalley told us, “I hope my manhood is more than just my facial hair, but some people think a nice full beard is pretty manly.“

The claws came out, or shall we say clippers, for two head coaches at Snake River High School, as they finally got to shave off all of the bearded glory

 “The student council talked about doing a breast cancer awareness night and I said hey let’s see if we can raise a little money and if we raise enough money I’ll cut this thing off,” said Coach Dalley.

The students at Snake River raised a grand total of about $1,300.00 for the Susan G Komen Foundation to support breast cancer research.

Rich Dunn, Snake River’s Head Girls’ Basketball and Baseball coach told us, “You know my mom is a breast cancer survivor so I have a personal story and link to it, but really anybody that you know, you don’t have to look very far to find somebody that you know that has faced the disease. And it’s something that’s around us and if we haven’t faced it, somebody close will eventually. So anything we can do to help, and of course it’s something that unites the kids and gets them focused on a single goal and it’s fun to be a part of that and see kids put their efforts together.”

These beards weren’t too pretty to look at, but they are the product of hard work and commitment; about 6 months for Coach Dalley and 3 months for Coach Dunn.

“I don’t think I look good with it on or off, but I think I might be pushing a barrier of even uglier with it on. My wife tells me that she’s ready for it to be gone but we’ll see if she’s going to kiss me any more with it gone. That’s what we’re hoping for, “ added Coach Dunn.    

After the deed was done both coaches said they were excited about the money they helped raise,  and now just have to start getting used to their new statement stache’s.

“I feel a little bald right now, I’m not going to lie… feels a little weird… I’m scared to look and see what I have on my face right now,” said Coach Dalley

“I feel like I need to match that money just to get him to shave that cop stache he’s got going on right now… “ added Coach Dunn.

Breast cancer awareness month is coming to a close now, and tournament season is upon us. The assembly at Snake River today also celebrated their volleyball, cross country, and football teams starting their journey to State Championships.
