Happy Easter! Bunnies and High School Football

happy easter

Happy Easter to all of our readers. I hope that you have an awesome day celebrating and reflecting on all of your blessings with your family.

As I’m apt to do on certain holidays, I decided I’d take a look at whether any high school football team in America has a bunny…yes, like the Easter Bunny…as a mascot. And, guess what? There are two — Benson in Nebraska and Fisher (no relation to me) in in Illinois.

In the case of Benson High School, located in Omaha, they are actually known as the Mighty Bunnies. Below is the school’s logo:

Fisher High School is located in the small village of Fisher, which has a population of less than 2,000 residents. The Fisher Bunnies play in Illinois’ smallest classification, 1A.

Below is Fisher’s cool helmet logo:
