“They’re all a great bunch of guys and they really stepped up,” Thornton said of his teammates. “This is all voluntary, nobody’s forced to do it. This is showing how big of a great group of guys we have in that room. Even the guys that didn’t shave their head they donated money to at least match the minimum bid. I can’t say enough for the guys.”
