You Won’t Believe These Weird High School Mascots From Texas
Mascots are an important part of sports, especially at the high school and college levels. Here are some rather odd ones from around Texas.
Get ready to giggle at some really weird mascots from all over the lone star state. Seriously, there are some good ones out there...
Mascots tend to be somewhat fierce, with schools using cool animals like Eagles ... Eagles are the most common mascot in Texas by the way ... Falcons and Tigers for example. Or, they get tough "character" mascots like Matadors, Knights, Pirates, etc.
Even home schooled Texas athletes get cool names like the CTSA Outlaws. Not all Texas mascots instill fear in their opponents though. Take these for example:
- Hutto Hippos. Really ... based on a, (supposedly), true story.
- New Braunfels Unicorns. While, as I mentioned before, Eagles are the most popular mascots in Texas, these guys seem to be the ONLY unicorns.
- Texas City Stingarees. Yep, a stingray. I can see this one being a bit intimidating to the other teams. After all, one killed Steve Irwin in 2006. Crickey.
- Mesquite Skeeters. Their mascot is a huge mosquito named "Stormy". (Not sure where that came from. Trump maybe?) I guess the threat of West Nile Virus is what sparks fear in their enemies.
Last one. Cuero Gobblers ... seriously, I'm not kidding.
They're mean, green and, (being that they're turkeys), I assume, LEAN.
Around here, I think we'd probably go with CuerVo Guzzlers. THAT'S a team I would gladly show up to practice every day for
If you don't believe all of these ... which, honestly, I kind of wasn't buying them either at first ... feel free to check out photos here.
