College football players shave their heads to support coach battling cancer

The players at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas, show off their shaved heads in the weight room.

(CNN)As their football coach started chemo, the players wanted to do something special to show their support -- so they shaved their heads.

Their decision to stand in solidarity with their coach was an easy one, several players from Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas, told CNN. They said their coach never gives up on them and therefore they aren't giving up on him.
The players recorded the emotional moment they showed Kris Sweet, the team offensive coordinator, their new look. Sweet was sitting in his office on Monday as the players walked in one by one with bald heads.
"This all for you coach," one player is heard saying.
    Sweet stands up embracing each of them. The video has since gone viral of on Twitter.
