One of the newest traditions at USC, the Mascots are an integral part of school spirit at all Trojan athletic events. The Mascots are responsible for leading stadium wide chants and increasing crowd participation at Trojan football, basketball, volleyball, water polo, soccer, and baseball games. The Spirit Leaders have been part of both a Rose Bowl victory and a trip to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in basketball. In addition to promoting USC Spirit at all Trojan athletic events, the Mascots have been featured on ESPN College Gameday and the Jeopardy! College Championships.
The Mascots have also provided Trojan spirit at the Rose Parade, Disneyland, Dave and Busters, Universal Studios, all On-Campus Rallies, and Swim with Mike. In fact, at the Swim with Mike event, the Spirit Leaders swam nearly 2,000 laps to raise money for physically challenged athletes. Mascots are also sent to every away football game in order to maintain a Trojan atmosphere while playing in hostile environments. The Mascots have quickly established themselves as a mainstay in the Trojan Family. In the upcoming season, the Mascots hope to continue to develop new traditions while honoring the proud, long-standing traditions of the University. The Mascots hope to continue working with the Trojan Marching Band and the Song Girls to create a winning atmosphere for all Trojan athletes.
