Andrew Co-op sophomore Jacob Geron made some people do a double-takeFriday night.
Geron attends Sandburg, and for weeks his long flowing hair was dyed blonde and he looked like a rock star. But that all changedlast Fridaymorning when he participated in the school’s St. Baldrick’s activity and shaved his head for childhood cancer awareness.
“A few of my teammates saw me get it cut at Sandburg, but when I got to Andrew, the others were like ‘wow.’’’ Geron said.
He is trying to turn a few heads and make a few people in the gymnastics world say “wow’’ as well. He just got serious about the sport last year as a freshman and is making some strides, including leading his team in the all-around against Lyons in a dual meet on March 11 and at the Homewood-Flossmoor Invitational on March 14.
