You can catch Sam Hartman on a football field, in a weight room, or in a quarterback meeting … but one place you won’t find the former Notre Dame superstar is a barbershop — ’cause he tells TMZ Sports he knows he simply cannot cut his luscious locks.
The Fighting Irish star spoke with us while out in Las Vegas for Super Bowl week … and he explained that one thing he’s learned since he’s risen to stardom — both on the field and off of it — is that his hair has to be here to stay.
“People are adamant about that,” Hartman said with a laugh. “And my mom likes it.”
Of course, the ‘do has certainly opened up a lot of doors for the 24-year-old in the past year or so. While his play on the field has obviously garnered him a lot of attention in the sports world — his looks have turned him into an internet sensation.
In fact, an ad he just recently appeared in has already gained over 20 MILLION views on TikTok … with most of the watchers droolin’ over his mane in the comment section.

Hartman is clearly aware of it all … telling us jokingly, “Shoutout to Mom for giving me the hair and giving me the good genetics.”
But, the signal-caller has his eyes slated on far more than being a heartthrob … he’s gunning to make the NFL — working his tail off this offseason so a team will select him in April’s draft.
Although this week, Hartman has shifted his focus a bit to his partnership with DIRECTV For Business — which, as he explained to us, has and will continue to help those in need.
