PORTLAND, Ore. - To his credit, David Horst (ODU'07) wants to be known first and foremost for his play as a center back for the Portland Timbers. But there is no escaping that Horst's mustache is what is quickly raising his profile among Timbers fans.
Teammate Peter Lowry, who documented the growth of the mustache throughout March, dubbed it "Horstache." The 'stache almost immediately had a cult following and by Tuesday night, just five days after it had its own Twitter account, the mustache had already accumulated 328 followers.
