  The mascot here at Deer Valley High School is very well known to be the Skyhawk.  The mascot is like our very own enthusiastic cheerleader with their own special spirit who will always get the students and crowd all fired up for sports games here at school.  The wild Skyhawk gets to dance, hug, and wave to students, and act silly all they want without completely humiliating themselves or being criticized by peers.  It is all fun, laughs, and smiles when it comes to being in the presence of the Skyhawk mascot.

  The only time I have ever seen the mascot myself is at the home football games.  I have always wondered who it is in control and behind that flappy bird costume.  I am sure you have been curious as to who it is too, or maybe you are even interested in becoming the mascot.

  Marley Oakes, a senior, said, “It is more for Stugo people, but we’re not against people trying out to do it; if you’re really, really interested then you can come talk to anyone in Stugo.”  Oakes has actually dressed up as the mascot for events in the past, like football games and assemblies.  Although she has not dressed up as the flappy bird lately, anyone from Stugo who wanted to do it has, like Ashley Watkins, Jillian Also, Jarred Holland, and others.  Oakes also said, “It’s lots of fun, because no one knows it’s you and you can act crazy or stupid so you can really do whatever you want.  A lot of little kids that come to football games get really into it too. It can be annoying sometimes when they try and pull your tail, and that’s not fun, but most of the time it’s really fun and energetic.”
