Trevor Romaine is the manliest of all men. His facial-to-chest hair ratio is right on point and he's enhancing the power of his beard to make his kicks go farther, be more accurate and have perfect spirally movements.

OK, so that last part's not true at all, but he does have the epic beard of awesomeness that all kickers, offensive linemen and other under-appreciated positions should all have in the ultimate man's sport—football.
It's got just the right amount of bushiness, length and complementing chest hair that it puts other beards to shame. Other top-notch beards, like Daniel Bryan of the WWE and Brian Wilson from the MLB, would be proud of Romaine's facial hair.
The legend of the beard is starting to grow as far and wide as the beard itself. Just seeing it for a few seconds on television led to reactions on twitter.
why does the kicker from Oregon State have a defensive lineman's beard?— Chauncey Chillups (@dre_is_cool_as) November 30, 2013
Because he's awesome. Why don't we all have defensive linemen beards?
They would keep our faces warm for the coming months when it gets too cold to have bald faces.
Forget the Oregon vs. Oregon State's football game. Can we all just admire the beard on Oregon State's kicker? #BeardsAreForChamps— Chandler Milam (@ChandlerMilam) November 30, 2013
Chandler, we can all admire it. We should all aspire to have one. The furriness on his face will develop its own following. And the manscaping does deserve some admiration as well.
My new favorite college player is definitely Oregon State's kicker for the sole reason that he has the sickest beard ever.— Marcus Gastanaga (@chochgastanaga) November 30, 2013
All this being said, and, as epic as the beard is, the Beavers were unable to hook Romaine up with a game-winning opportunity. The beard was never given the opportunity to enhance Romaine's kicking abilities for the clutch kick in the final moments of the game.
A game that saw its owner—Romaine—make all three of his field goals as well as both of his extra points. Romaine also had a long kick of 47 yards, and in a game that the Beavers lost by a total of one point, it's rough to lose the way they did.
But at least we got to enjoy what is College Football's best beard.

And for that, Mr. Trevor Romaine, we salute you!
