DeAndre Yedlin's bobblehead doll reminds us of what could've been

DeAndre Yedlin is only 22 years old and has already played professionally for three different clubs. But before he was the best right back the world has ever seen, he was lighting up the college game in the United States with the University of Akron.

Also, before his move to England, Yedlin had the best hair in the entire universe. The uptight Premier League folks don't like fun, so he was guilted into cutting it all. His beautiful head of hair may be a thing of the past, but like all iconic things, it's coming back in the form of memorabilia.

Akron are planning a DeAndre Yedlin bobblehead giveaway night. The first 1000 fans in attendance of their match against Seattle University in August will receive this amazing piece of soccer history.

If only we could've seen that amazing 'do flying around the pitch in England. It would've been a sight to behold.

Yedlin's phenomenal haircuts haven't been seen since his MLS days, but that doesn't mean they can't live on in the form of an awesome little bobblehead.

Who do I have to pay to go to Akron to pick up one of these for me?
