Legend has it there was a contest among students in the 1980s for a mascot name, and this was the one stuck.
The name was given to the people living in remote woods, famous for feuds with their enemies. Fredonia gets its mascot name also for the fact that the school is on a giant hill.
The mascot's naming was influenced after a French medieval tale called, "Le Jongleur de Notre Dame". The moral of the story is to be inspired to do the best you possibly can.
Somers' mascot honors the town's strong ties to the American circus, giving a nod to the elephant tusks. The town is home to the Elephant Hotel, which was built by Hachaliah Bailey, who became known for acquiring the second elephant brought to America in the early 1800s. Bailey toured with the elephant known as Old Bet. P.T. Barnum called Bailey the father of the American circus.
The mascot used to be a burger. Realizing a burger wasn't quite striking fear into opposing sports teams, the school revised the mascot to the Burghermeister, known as the ruler of the town in Germany.
