You've probably seen Charger Blue at the games, cheering on the crowd and inspiring the home team. Or walking around campus, spreading school spirit and giving out high-fives. But have you ever wondered about the person behind that giant blue horse head? Just who is the mascot for UAH? Generally, says Nikki Goode, director of Student Activities at UAH, Charger Blue is an upperclassman who is selected for his or her infectious enthusiasm - and willingness to take on such a, well, furry mantle. But while there is typically an audition process during cheerleading tryouts each April, that wasn't the case for former Charger Blue Zak Bandy. "I was the only candidate!" Bandy says of his one-year stint. Nor did he have any experience beyond a high school career spent "decked out in face paint and cheering my team on to win." But that was enough to land him the gig he calls "nothing less than a positive experience."
