Black Squirrel

Team: Haverford College

Mascot Type:

Some players on the baseball team saw a lot of black squirrels (real ones, not mascots) in the area of the baseball field years ago. They attributed to the squirrels the characteristics of feistiness, distinctiveness, energy and determination they wanted as their own trademark. In the mid-1990s, the college actually made a decision: the official nickname would remain “Fords,” Haverford would adopt a mascot in the form of a Black Squirrel (and had a costume made up which, however, resembled a chipmunk)
