LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming Athletics Department introduced today the redesigned mascot long known to Cowboy fans as Pistol Pete. The fan-friendly character's career was launched at the annual Fall Sports Media Day luncheon held in the Rochelle Athletics Center.
Pistol Pete, really a UW student, will assist the Wyoming cheerleaders, encourage the crowd and get the young fans involved in the game.
The mascot's appearance was designed over the past year by Street Characters from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with the input and supervision of UW's Athletics Marketing Department.
