He may have a huge afro by the time his career is over.
You guys think he will stick to this?
And while Willis is always motivated to stop opposing running backs, there’s even more on the line this time around. Willis completely shaved his face and head prior to the Rams matchup and will let the hair grow until the 49ers reach the playoffs.
“Hopefully, I’ll be getting it cut by the end of the season,” he said with a smile. “I’m going to line it up, but keep letting it grow.”
Like his hair, Willis’ value to the 49ers defense will continue to grow too, whether he’s making 10-plus tackles or not.
