Idaho is an interesting place, and the high school mascots' names across the Gem State reflect that. If nothing else, it reflects the creativity of the people in charge of naming school mascots! I can only guess how some of these names were given to these schools...
Marching bands add so much to the atmosphere at high school football games, that it's hard to imagine what the game would be like without them. It's not Friday Night Lights without the band, and we've got three reasons why these dedicated students deserve a big high five this weekend.
We've got some good ones in Idaho. The Orofino Maniacs have gained some attention for being odd, and the Shelby High Russets usually get noticed for capitalizing on our love for the spud. And those Idaho Vandals...well, the Vandal is a Viking, but the mascot name can sound a lil criminal.
