In preparation for the game and accompanying festivities, many Pirate football players gathered the evening before the big game at Heather Rae’s Salon in Buellton, where they traded in traditional haircuts for orange Mohawks. The game did not go as well as hoped, but the large crowd stood by their team and the traditions that make the high school an alma mater worth bragging about.
