Centennial coach Scott Raper ready for his 'haircut'

Last year, Scott Raper promised his Centennial boys basketball players that they could shave his head if they made it to the state tournament.

They fell short, but after qualifying for state this year, they asked if the offer still stood.

“I told them, ‘No, you’re a little better this year. You’ll have to win the whole thing,’” Raper said.

Well, that’s what the Bison did, winning the Class 3A title on March 12, and now it’s time for the celebratory head shave. It will take place at center court inside the Centennial gym as part of a state championship celebration Friday beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The team will present the gold ball trophy to the school and they will display the design of the players’ state championship rings.
