Gunner Miller modeled his long hair and face paint after his favorite wrestler, the Ultimate Warrior. But now Gunner is a clean cut Warrior after a hair cut.
"Got tired of having long hair. Long showers. Taking a lot of time. Cut it all off and went back to the old me." Reporter-"Who cut it?" Said Gunner,"About four of the guys cut it. We did it at the house one day. They all took turns snipping at it. It was a group effort."
Miller may have cut the locks, but he still has the face paint. Said Gunner,"It doesn't run or anything. It's just like the guys who put it on their cheeks. It's not going to go off. It doesn't get in your eyes. It doesn't burn or anything. It's a little hard to get off afterwards. That's the worst part. I got mascara on for the next day or so looks like."
Reporter-"Have you inspired anybody else on the team to wear it."
"Paint up a bunch of guys right before we go out there. They're all coming up to me. I need some eye black. Paint me up. But they just do the regular. Streaks across the cheek."
Football players aren't the only ones that like Miller's face paint. UTC created a marketing commercial based on Miller's look, where athletic department employees painted up their face like Gunner's. Said Gunner,"Yeah I've seen it a few times. I always laugh when I see it. All the guys are making fun of it at the house and stuff. They're like, hey, you're on TV again. Everybody has got their face painted."
