USFL Reveals Official Mascots, Names To Be Determined

Videos by OutKick

With just days until the inaugural 2022 United States Football League season kicks off, the time has come to introduce the mascots. But there is one thing missing … they still need names.

Each team revealed its mascot on social media on Monday, and while they look great, each team is asking fans to take part in naming the new member of the club.

Here are the mascots for all eight USFL teams:

Birmingham Stallions

“Full Steed Ahead, our mascot is here,” the team tweeted.

Houston Gamblers

The Gamblers are all-in on their new mascot, but he still needs a name.

“Calvin Ridley,” one user wrote.

Michigan Panthers

“The Hunt is over,” the Panthers tweeted. “We’ve got our official mascot!”

While the team is still asking for name suggestions, the most liked name at the time of publication is a tweet naming the mascot, “Shea Pantherson.”

New Jersey Generals


The Generals have their new mascot, but he still needs a name.

New Orleans Breakers

“BREAKING: Our new official mascot is here!” the team tweeted.

One individual thinks the new mascot should be named “Tchoupy.”

Philadelphia Stars

The Stars are asking for help naming the “USFL’s clear best mascot” and one individual took the time to think of a few options in the replies.

“I love him,” the Twitter user wrote. “Ok here goes: Burpy, Moogy, Octophreak, Lumpy, Yamichan (fake mascot from the sims), Comet, Pasha, … Bumpy, Plucky (synonym for gritty), Deborah.”

Pittsburgh Maulers

“Nailed it. Just DROPPED our official mascot,” the team tweeted. “Give us your best name suggestion below!”

Tampa Bay Bandits

“Stick ’em up!”

The Bandits have their new mascot and, just like the other teams, they want fans to help name him.

One clever name in the replies is the “Bayside Bandit.”

If you have any suggestions for the teams, reply to the specific team’s tweet of the mascot to make your suggestions! Here’s a look at all of them:

  1. Pittsburgh stole Purdue’s mascot. Grimace has a new job as Philly’s mascot. Michigan’s looks eerily similar to Arizona’s Wilma Wildcat. Birmingham took Oklahoma’s Boomer and dyed his hair red. Houston’s and Tampa’s look like Herbie Husker’s cousins

  2. Cancel them all

    Stallions — sexist because it’s a male horse unless it’s identifying as a mare
    Gamblers– insensitive to those of us that are addicted to gambling
    Panthers– I think of black panthers so clearly racist
    Generals — lead soldiers into battle and war is bad
    Stars — everybody is equal so there can be no stars
    Maulers — clearly advocating for violence against women
    Bandits — glamorizing theft
    Breakers — encouraging the youth to break the law
