WVU Offensive Lineman Sheds Long Hair for Charity

You may recognize WVU offensive lineman Pat Eger because of his long golden hair and ponytail, but you may not recognize him when he takes the field for the WVU Pro Day this spring.

Pat Eger received his first hair cut in years on Sunday, and decided to donate the hair to a good cause. The hair will be used by Pantene to go to child cancer patients who lost their hair from cancer treatment. Eger says he was always brought up to give back to his community.

"I mean, I've been doing it all my life and I don't plan to stop. Even if I don't go play professional football, when that's over I'll still be doing it. It's just in my blood, in my nature. It's just what I do. My mom's always taught me that sometimes it's better to give then receive. That's kind of how I was raised," he told 5 News.

The haircut was held in the player's lounge of the Milan Puskar Center.
