Since 1952, the FSDB Dragon mascot has been without a name. The FSDB Cobra mascot has been nameless since 1982. The FSDB Athletics Department would like you to change that.
The 'Name our Mascots' contest will give alumni, students, staff members, and friends of FSDB the opportunity to name our Dragon and Cobra.
Individuals wishing to participate in the contest may submit potential names from Friday, January 21, to January 28. A committee comprised of students, alumni, and staff members will select a list of finalists. An online vote for the official name will begin Friday, February 4, and run through February 11. The official name will be announced later in the school year.
"There have been some assumptions about the names of the mascots over the years," said FSDB Athletic Director Donna Johnson. "The opportunity to officially name both mascots is unique and historic. Giving them an identity will help bond it to all of our fans that follow and support FSDB Athletics."
Naming submissions will be accepted by submitting the online form.
Consideration will be given to names that fit with "Dragons" and "Cobras," have historic or regional ties to FSDB or the state of Florida, are gender-neutral, and are the most marketable.
