Giving back: Texans special teams coordinator Frank Ross cuts hair in the community and on the field

HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Before, during and after Texans practice, special teams coordinator Frank Ross goes to great lengths to keep his team at their best. His other passion is for much shorter lengths.

“In middle school, I just started cutting everybody’s hair,” Ross said. “I cut my hair myself. A little money, and now I do it as a great passion of the mind, and I’d like to think I’ve become decent.”

He calls it Coach’s Cuts. Ross is entering his second season here in Houston and tells ABC13 that he cuts the hair of several Texans members, including his players.

“I saw his cuts,” admitted Roy Lopez, Texans defensive lineman. “He can cut hair. He’s got talent. He doesn’t just do it because it’s fun.”

Earlier this year, Ross stepped out of the locker room, sharing his talents with members of the Houston community. With the help of three local barbers and several players, Ross and the Texans served meals and donated Star of Hope haircuts to homeless people.

“It was a great opportunity to give back,” Ross noted. “When I was cutting my hair there at the homeless shelter, and I had all these amazing people around me helping me. It actually kind of suffocated me. Seeing people in need, and I had the opportunity to try to help someone.”

Ross is skilled with layers – and players. So what is the parallel between creating special teams and cutting hair?

“The key is in the lineup,” Ross said with a smile. “Just like I tell my kick-off return unit: it’s your benchmark. It’s your key! The key is in the line-up, make sure you look tight. “

As he continues to moonlight as a barber when time permits, Frank Ross gives us a training camp oddity: a coach with players asking him to cut them.
