WORTHINGTON -- The Worthington High School boys soccer team, which will begin state tournament competition Thursday at Waconia in a 5:30 p.m. game with Willmar, will look good as it takes the field.

New Gen Studios in downtown Worthington , owned and operated by Jesus Ordaz, reached out to WHS soccer head coach Juan Flores recently and offered every member of the 22-player team, along with the coaching staff, free haircuts as they prepared for state.

Within about 24 hours of the offer, hair styling for 25 young men was under way.

Ordaz and stylist Victor Sanchez are alumni of the Worthington High School soccer program.

On Wednesday, Coach Flores announced his thanks on behalf of the entire team.

"Everybody on the team got (a haircut). All 22 boys got one, even the managers got one. They were all excited about that," Flores said. "We all look sharp. We look like decent gentlemen now."

The Trojans will bring their new looks to the high school gymnasium Thursday morning for a pep fest and send-off.

As for the game, Flores pronounced the team ready to go. "I think some of the boys, their heads will be cold . But that will be OK," he mused.
