  • Warrick Makes Sports Illustrated | The Warrior
    kind of an honor and makes me proud to be associated with the mascot and Waldorf said Jason Ramaker Dean of Students I told students friends and family about the recognition and everything though it was a pretty neat deal Athletic Director Bart Gary also got praises from abroad I have had calls from all over the U S from friends and former students who saw the September issue of SI with Warrick as one of the featured mascots SI attempted to interpret the inspiration for Warrick s new look By referencing Toy Story character Stinky Pete and Link from the Zelda video game writer Mark Bechtel had some fun with Waldorf s latest version of the mascot Nigel Jenkins men s basketball head coach also enjoyed the article and joked I do think Warrick would take care of the new Bob of Virginia Wesleyan College but would likely need some back up against the new Testudo University of Maryland According to Ramaker this wasn t the first time Wally went for a nip and tuck Waldorf revived the lovable mascot several years ago We have worked hard to make sure he is out there representing Waldorf and fun When Warrick was developed it only enhanced our school spirit and awareness of being a proud warrior Ramaker added Mascots are fun and I think we are a distinctive small college with a distinctive mascot which may be why we got recognized Our use of the mascot makes us unique Ramaker also clarified that Wally is not dead He will be brought out special events and yes Warrick will be there too Maybe we should call them Warriors United Author Whitney Fike Share This Post On Google Facebook Twitter Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published
