Why the Vikings?

Why would a landlocked county decide to name their high school mascot the Vikings? They pillaging the Enoree or Lawsons Fork Creek?

If so, they’re doing a poor job. I myself pillaged a cool ass canoe out of Lawson’s Fork Creek. And it was literally stuck under the bridge behind the Viking baseball field.

When they were picking names out of a hat way back then, the only two names left were Vikings and Cavaliers. I guess Spartanburg didn’t do too bad ... considering. :D

Hell, I’d rather have a French mascot than an Germanic one.

In that case you could have been the ticklers.

There were some lean years where I thought that was the defensive strategy. With the offense Gutshall has been fielding the last few years, if we had a downright scary defense to go with it I think we’d slip up a rung. We made some strides defensively this year though

If you have noticed, I don’t give too much hell to fans of down programs. There’s no fun in that. I ’m sure that you’ve also noticed I give you and the other gay cavaliers more hell than you appreciate, but it’s all in fun, and it’s all out of respect.
Unless I photoshop nuts on your chin, then I’m pretty sure it’s not done out of respect.
I honestly believe that Gaffney can win every game every season. I also believe that if you don’t respect your opponent you are probably going to lose. Dorman is a team we respect.
I think we don’t respect Spartanburg very much, but it doesn’t matter, they don’t respect themselves.

I see it as a bagde of honor to be whacked good by an Indian.
