Daxton Poulson was in the middle of chatting about his hair, recently bleached light blonde, when he spotted a teammate outside the Halliwell Park clubhouse. Poulson was explaining how this all came together, how he and the Pocatello Rebels decided to dye their hair blonde for the state tournament, and he saw the perfect way to illustrate his point.

“And then Preston did it,” Poulson said, pointing to his teammate standing a few feet away.
