SportsPickle published a list of 10 high schools with great team names. You submitted other schools that deserved to make the list. Here they are …
– – – – –
#10 – Frankfort High Hot Dogs
Do their players celebrate a lot? Is there a hot dog manufacturing plant in the town? Did their previous mascot, a bulldog, catch fire in a tragic accident? Like hot dogs themselves, it’s probably a mix of everything.
#9 – Hoopeston Area Cornjerkers
It’s surprising this school even has sports teams. Most teenage boys would choose to stay home jerking their corn over playing a sport.
#8 – Belfry Bats
Belfry is a town of 219 people with 27 high school students. So it has one of the coolest team names in America and is Montana’s biggest city.
#7 – Tarpon Springs Spongers
Tarpon Springs, Florida
Their sports teams may not be great, but they probably have one of the lowest teen pregnancy rates in all the land! Good job, Spongers!
#6 – New Braunfels High Unicorns
New Braunfels, Texas
Not scary? You’re so wrong. You’d be super scared if you saw a unicorn, because they’re not real. Plus, just try to tackle a unicorn. No padding would prevent that beautiful, spirally horn from ripping right through you.
The only problem here is that this team is in Texas. If a real unicorn was spotted in Texas, it would be immediately shot and grilled.
#5 – Watersmeet Nimrods
You think “nimrod” is a name for a moron? Ha! No. Nimrod means “skillful hunter.” You would know that if you weren’t some kind of nimrod. I mean, moron.
#4 – Millennium Falcons
Having a logo with a Millennium Falcon from Star Wars in it would be much cooler. But most high school athletic programs don’t make enough money to fight multimillion dollar lawsuits from George Lucas.
#3 – Poca Dots
Poca, West Virginia
This is a perfect team name for any teenager.
“What are those all over your face? Zits?”
“Nah, man. Dots. Team pride.”
#2 – Man High Hillbillies
Man, West Virginia
Not only are they called the Hillbillies, but the school’s address is One Hillbilly Circle. Really. People rip West Virginia for not having a lot going for it. But they definitely have self-awareness.
#1 – Yuma High Criminals
Fun Fact: That team of prisoners that beat the crap out the guards in “The Longest Yard”? All former Yuma High players.
