Lambkins (credit: fch.psdschools.org)

4. Fort Collins Lambkins – I went to FCHS so I had to include the lambkins. What is a lambkin? Common answer is a baby lamb, but isn’t a lamb already a baby sheep?


Lions (credit: lmshs.svvsd.org)

5. Lyons Lions – Maybe not creative, but what else would have been better? Honorable mention to the Bear Creek Bears.

7. Standley Lake (Westminister) Gators – It’s not like there are a lot of Tigers, Pirates, Trojans, or Spartans in Colorado and that hasn’t stopped high schools from using those mascots, but Gators in Colorado? Why not.
