The Charger is the mascot of the new Corner Canyon High School in Draper.
The Canyons Board of Education on Tuesday, Jan. 17 picked Chargers from a roster of several potential mascots. The list included Cougars, Diamondbacks, Falcons and Raptors.
No other high school in Utah has adopted Chargers as a mascot.
The Charger — a war horse — “is entirely appropriate,” said Dr. Paul McCarty, a member of the Canyons Board of Education. “The horse has been a prominent animal in Draper.”
“I like the alliteration; I like the appeal,” said Board member Kevin Cromar. “It’s something that will unify the community.”
The colors of the new school, which will open in 2013, are navy, silver and white.
