Cheering the ‘stache

William Dotterweich | Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Five weeks ago I started growing a mustache with the expectation that I would be instructed to shave it for the start of the football season. Traditionally, Notre Dame cheerleaders have been required to be clean shaven for all athletic events. However, the cheerleading coach permitted me to keep the ‘stache for the throwback Michigan game. I would like to express my gratitude for all of the mustache support that came my way during gameday this past weekend. I hope to see as many students as possible in Ann Arbor this weekend in what will likely be the ‘stache’s final appearance.
