Today’s Quote: If I Can’t Be a Mascot, I’ll Settle for Being a Paralegal or a Lawyer

“If that doesn’t work out, I will continue to look out for other mascot jobs while pursuing a job as a paralegal, or maybe go on to law school.” ~ Jerrod Leftwich, Sam Houston State University’s mascot Sammy Bearkat – and a graduating senior.

Leftwich recently won first place in the National Cheerleading Association’s Mascot Nationals competition in Florida and has his eye on the St. Louis Rams’ mascot position.
But if that doesn’t work out, he’s open to using his criminal justice degree for a job in the legal profession.

Oh, what’s a bearkat? According to Wikipedia, some say it is supposed to be a kinkajou, “a small, golden, carnivous mammal that resides in the jungles of South America” or more likely came from a local saying, “Tough as a Bearkat!”

Whatever. It beats the former varsity sports team nickname, “The Normals.”

(Incidentally, Leftwich’s first mascot role was as “Tony the Tiger” in high school, which makes his five-year stint as Sammy look like pure destiny.)
