SuperFrog to be announced
hopefuls can expect a year of parades, pep rallies and
football games if chosen to fill SuperFrogs shoes.
might think a mascot with chiseled abs would have to fight
the ladies off with a stick.
But according to some who have stepped in SuperFrogs
shoes, its the kids who attack, and with only a four inch
space to see out of, surprise attacks are common.
Its hard being SuperFrog because fans think
youre invincible with all those muscles, said
Jeff Tucker, head cheerleader coach. The kids will
come up and hit you because they think youre real.
Eight students auditioned Saturday to become one of the
on-call students who cheer at most athletic events and
the chosen students will be announced next week.
SuperFrog is easily the most recognizable reptile on campus
and the most important, said Jeff Crane, assistant director
Crane also told students to keep the identify of SuperFrog
confidential. He said fans should be unaware that different
students play SuperFrogs.
Students were instructed to project the image of invincibility
while in costume. SuperFrog is known to execute muscle
poses on command and give hi-fives to fans, Jeff Tucker,
head cheerleader coach said.
Tucker warned of surprise attacks from excited fans. Since
the head is attached, Tucker said being SuperFrog can
be a painful experience with rough fans.
You become Arnold Schwarzenegger the instant you
put this on, Tucker said. You want to try
to be as upbeat and motivated as possible, you are an
ambassador for our school.
Students who make the cut will attend football games,
men and womens basketball games and volleyball matches
over the next year. They will also travel to away games
and can appear on television if they give a good show
on the sidelines, said Tucker.
SuperFrog is the ultimate representation of TCU,
said Michael, a freshman journalism major. He is
one of the most unique mascots in all of college sports.
