The Airedale mascot of Alma High School is the only one in the nation. The Airedale is known as the "King of the Terriers". According to an article in the March, 1998 Alma School District newsletter, J. Fred Patton, Alma High School Principal from 1931-1933, said that the students and faculty selected the Airedale as the school mascot in 1932.
Little Rock, AR
They may have created the ultimate pun when Arkansas School for the Deaf chose the Leopards as their mascot. "Welcome to the home of the Arkansas School for the Deaf Leopards!" is posted across their athletic website. It's not quite Def Leppards, but that doesn't mean "Pour Some Sugar On Me" couldn't be their fight song.
Cave City, AR
The Cave City mascot has been the Caveman since the beginning of time; or at least since 1890, when the school was founded. Cavemen are usaually portrayed as wearing shaggy animal hides, armed with rocks or cattle bone clubs, and ad being very aggressive. Not a bad choice for a mascot; epscially with a school name like Cave City.
The Hermit mascot clearly plays off of the school's name, Hermitage. A hermit by definition is a person who lives, to some degree, in seclusion from society. So perhaps you will rarely see Hermitage High School's mascot outside of sporting events. Their athletic teams go by the extended name of the Hermitage Hustlin' Hermits.
Ozark High School was originally the Ozark Bulldogs, with school colors of orange and black. In the early 1930's, the student body voted to adopt the Hillbilly as the mascot, and change the colors to purple and gold. There have been several versions of the Hillbilly mascot, but the most recent one is muscled up, shirtless, wears overralls, and carries a shotgun. Ozark stands by the acronym HPRD, Hillbilly Pride Runs Deep, which they use in many of their school spirit assemblies.
