WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of an eight-man Wichita football team consisting of Christian homeschooled boys have shaved their heads in support of their coach's battle against cancer.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/17VQkbQ) reports the entire Wichita Warriors team took turns having their heads shaved Saturday in tribute to 49-year-old Bill Turner, who was diagnosed with late-stage throat cancer last month.

Turner doesn't smoke or chew tobacco, but he first noticed his throat hurting in March. He finished his first round of chemotherapy on Friday.

The coach hasn't lost his hair to the cancer treatments yet, so he took his turn in the stylist's chair.

The Warriors are a team for homeschooled students that was started last year. They play their first game of the season Friday against Cair Paraval Latin School in Topeka.
