I agree...I'm sure there are a number of previous cases that the parents can use to help win the case. My brother went through something similar on the football team in FL. The coach insisted he cut his hair and my mom refused and said if you want him to play he'll play just like he is or he wont play. Needless to say...he played with long hair.

I also agree with the girl vs boy distinction. I think that arguement along with other cases that have been won can help win this case.
