Alabama’s Derrick Henry loved fan imitations of his hairstyle
Alabama fans are understandably obsessed with Heisman Trophy-winning running back Derrick Henry. But Crimson Tide supporters are beginning to take their obsession to a weird level: Fake hair.
As in, dangle extensions.
Friends and family have been sending Henry pictures of Tide fans wearing his signature ‘do.
“I was like ‘who in the world’ would think of that?” he told AL.com‘s Michael Casagrande. “Like ‘who in the hell would put a thing looking like my hair on the back of their head.’ I have a picture of it on my phone.”
Apparently, the star running back gets asked about his locks on a regular basis. One of the most common questions: Will he cut it off?
“No,” he said. “I’m not going to cut it off and it fits fine under my helmet.”
