The Elite Eight for The Most Unique Mascot Name Contest!

Last week The Freeport Pretzels defeated the Plano Reapers. Next up is The Lincoln Railsplitters.

According to Freeport News Network this is a 64-team bracket, like “March Madness.”  Winning mascosts move on with each win with the announcement of the “Mascot Madness” during the IHSA 4A boys basketball championship on March 19th.

So the Pretzels need your help, to ONCE AGAIN be crowned Mascot champions. This happened in the late 80's for The Freeport Pretzels on ESPN.


Other notable names in this Mascot tournament include:

  • Morton Potters
  • Carbondale Terriers
  • Normal Ironmen
  • Rochelle Hubs
  • Resurrection Bandits
