Who is afraid of the big, bad wolf? Certainly not East Valley Tribune readers, who voted Chandler High School’s wolf as the best school mascot for the second consecutive year.
Having Wolves as a mascot is hardly unique. According to the website highschoolnicknames.homestead.com, Wolves are the 29th-most common selection among high schools nationally. Even two other high schools in Arizona — Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale and Estrella Foothills High School in Goodyear — share the nickname of Canis lupus.
But Chandler High School can claim something its state brethren lack: longevity. Established in 1914, Chandler High has existed in some form for an entire century.
Chandler High’s student body has done its part to uphold the proud Wolves name. According to the school’s website, Chandler High has produced 50 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists in the past six years and the school recently received an “A” grade from the Arizona Department of Education.
In sports, the Wolves football team, led by Bryce Perkins and Chase Lucas, is one of the best Division I squads in Arizona and is expected to contend for a state championship this season.
So perhaps the only people who should fear the big, bad wolf — affectionately named “Scruffy” at Chandler High — is anyone who doubts the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the Chandler High School Wolves.
