After the defeat of football arch-rival Hillsborough, Lakeland's principal called the student body to an assembly. At the close of his speech, McKay suggested that from that day on the team be known as "The Dreadnaught," (a Dreadnaught is a British battleship) and the name has stuck for 82 years. in 1977 it was decided that the school needed a mascot, or token, to pull around on the football field. They decided on a bell, and soon got The G Cutrell Bell on loan to them from the navy. Rumor has it that because the bell was stationed at US Navy Base Goat island, that every friday night the island flys a flag with the Lakeland school colors.
