The lone wolf is red-shirt freshman Reese Phillips, who gets teased frequently for his long, flowing locks.
In fact, the flow of those locks is quite important to Phillips.
“Here’s the deal: You’ve gotta get the flow,” he said, smoothing his wavy dark brown locks for media on Friday. “The flow. Let it grow.
“They all shave it off and they think it looks so cool, but it’s not. Think about some of the best quarterbacks ever and they’ve got the flow. Nowadays everyone’s shaving it off. You’ve gotta keep the quarterback look.”
He noted the “flow” that New England quarterback Tom Brady used to sport.
“That’s why I wanted this,” Phillips said. “Now I’m not going to grow it out crazy. I was going to get a haircut, but I didn’t want to have that awkward haircut look at Media Day.”
Does this also mean that Phillips is looking to land himself a super model like Brady’s Gisele Bundchen?
“Is that a bad thing?” he said laughing. “If that’s your goal, that’s a pretty good goal.”
