The NFL’s hair care king and the first of its kind, the NFL HairCare King was crowned Thursday night.
The crowning ceremony, which was streamed live on ESPN, included former and current NFL players, coaches, owners, media members and other influencers.
The winner will be named the league’s Hair Care King at a ceremony in New York on Dec. 1.
The winner will then move on to the NFL Players Association for the annual Super Bowl 50 event, the league announced.
The announcement came after a week of speculation about who might be crowned “Haircare King” and when the announcement might be made.
The NFL, which also includes professional soccer and the American Football League, announced the league was making the announcement after its annual meeting on Thursday night in Indianapolis.
The “Hairspray King” title comes from a tweet by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been outspoken in his criticism of NFL players protesting racial injustice in the U.S.
During his time as an NFL quarterback, Kaepernick has taken a stance against police brutality and police violence.
In October 2016, he took to Twitter to announce his support for Black Lives Matter.
The league also announced Thursday night that it would honor the “Hands on the Wheel” and “Horsepower” stars who were part of the 2016 NFL Awards ceremony in Hollywood.
In addition to the “King” title, the nominees for the 2016 “Hawks” awards will also be announced.
“I know the first thing you want to do is congratulate each and every one of them,” former 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis told reporters at the NFL awards.
“I know it’s hard.
I have a job to do.
I want to be there.”
Davis, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014, is one of only two active players in NFL history to win two straight Super Bowls.
The other is former NFL center Max Kellerman, who won Super Bowl LI in 1996 and 1997.
