CHS Mascots

Abby Starling, JBJ Senior Co-Editor

 The 2010-2011 school year is all about better things, new changes and awesome additions to better our school and student body spirit. One of the best changes to our school is the new varsity Tiger mascots, Haylie Barber and Clint Copeland. Their energetic and school spirited attitude drives them to be the best mascots CHS has seen in a long time.

 “I want my name to be known and recognized,” Copeland said. “Not for just being the mascot, Titto the Tiger, but for being one of the best mascots in Corsicana High School’s history.”

 There are a lot of fun aspects about being the mascot, but Barber just loves entertaining and making people laugh.

“My favorite part about being the mascot is being able to see how it just puts a smile on people’s faces to see a dancing tiger,” Barber said.

Copeland also enjoys entertaining and pumping up the crowd. “I love the fact that whatever I do in my character as Titto the Tiger,” Copeland said, “it automatically makes whatever I am doing 20 times more awesome!”

It is not easy being a mascot, but Barber and Copeland let us in on a few qualities they think anyone will need to be a great mascot.

“You have to be mature! There is a time to play around and a time to be serious. You also have to think on your toes. You have to think of stuff right off the top of your head and you have to be able to improvise,” Copeland said. “Good balance is also important. You don’t want to fall in front of everybody! Can you say embarrassing?”

“I think you would have to be willing to get out and have a great time,” Barber added. “You also have to be able to laugh at yourself!”

Pep rallies and Friday night football games are always fun and exciting, but Barber and Copeland plan to bring something new and different to further enhance the experience of these festivities for Tiger fans.

“We plan on making the whole game experience more fun, and we are going to include the student body more this time around,” Barber said.

 Copeland makes it clear that there will never be a time where you are disappointed.

 “Whatever we do definitely depends on the occasion or who we are playing that week,” Copeland said. “Let me put it this way, you definitely won’t be disappointed!”
