Ohio State’s Drue Chrisman shaves head for grandmother with breast cancer

If you’ve seen Ohio State sophomore Drue Chrisman thumping punts out on the field, you’ve noticed his long locks.

Those are no more — and for good reason.

On Tuesday morning the Buckeye football Twitter account posted a short clip about Chrisman’s relationship with his grandmother, who has breast cancer. The video shows Chrisman shaving his head to support his grandmother.

“Once I found out she did, I just wanted to do something,” Chrisman said in the clip.

Chrisman’s father also speaks in the video and it shows Chrisman visiting his grandmother in Aurora, Indiana.

“The least I could do was help the cause by donating my hair,” Chrisman said. “Gonna give myself a new hair style, let me know what you think.”

He’s then seen with his grandmother cutting his hair and at the end his fully shaved head is shown.

Chrisman, who’s been the starting punter for the Buckeyes in all six of their games, is averaging 42.6 yards per punt with a long of 62. He’s stuck 14 of his 20 punts inside the 20-yard line.
