Wilson might also be the only quarterback to start under center with a hairdo that resembles an S-curl.
Wilson’s hair resembles the character Darryl Jenks, who wore an infamous Jheri curl in the movie Coming to America. He was asked about his hairdo on Tuesday, and there is actually a good reason why he has not been to the barbershop lately.
"People keep asking me about my hair, if that’s a factor in the game," Wilson said "Normally, I keep my hair pretty low, but I actually saw an 11th grade picture of my dad and I. When I was in 11th grade, I won a state championship, and I had my hair grown out. I didn’t cut my hair the whole year for that season, and my dad didn’t either. It kind of inspired me for this year. That’s kind of why I have the Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, S-curl right now."
