Buccaneers shave their heads to support the fight against pediatric cancer

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are once again shaving their heads to support the fight against pediatric cancer. This is the second year they'll be participating in the Cut for a Cure campaign.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that more than 20 players and staff members will shave their heads to support the fight against pediatric cancer. Children who have battled or are battling cancer will visit the team facility to help shave players' heads. The Bucs hope to raise $20,000 as a part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's Fifth Annual Bright House Networks Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge, which is a ridiculously long title. 

The most prominent players to participate in this event will be Connor Barth, Michael Johnson, Mike Glennon and Clinton McDonald. If you want to support their efforts to support the fight against pediatric cancer, you can donate to the Cut for a Cure campaign at their website. Obviously, the Bucs encourage you to do so in their name, but there are plenty of other organizations participating as well. As of this writing, the total amount donated stands at $270,659. 

The Bucs did the same thing last year, when "dozens" (per the Tampa Tribune) of Bucs participated, including Mark Dominik, Josh Freeman, Mason Foster, Connor Barth, Mike Williams and Ahmad Black. Weird note: three of those players are no longer Buccaneers. 

In total, twelve players and twelve staff members will have their heads shaved.

Players: K Connor Barth, T Emmett Cleary, LS Andrew DePaola, DE Michael Johnson, DE William Gholston, LB Ka'lial Glaud, QB Mike Glennon, RB Mike James, P Michael Koenen, DT Clinton McDonald, OL Patrick Omameh, S Keith Tandy

Staff: Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford, General Counsel David Cohen, Director of Sales Deno Anagnost, ,Senior Manager of Team Operations Tim Jarocki, Public Relations Manager Allen Barrett, Business Administration Manager Caleb Quaid, Community Relations Coordinator Steve Fidura, Public Relations Assistant Chris King, Group Account Executive Seth Shuman, Member Relations Associate Davi Sherwin, Public Relations Intern Tim Akins, Team Operations Intern Tim Drury.
