This is "ROWDY THE ROOSTER" - the Mascot for Vineland Senior High School that I created back in 1964 or '65 fro then famous wrestling coach, Tony "Big D" DiTomo. Vineland was once known for its nationwide poultry business (until the great heatwave of 1956, when all the chickens croaked) and the school mascot was a CHICKEN!! We were known as "The Fighting Poultry Clan", but our original mascot image (originally created by the coach's wife) was puny and scrawny, making our mascot a ridicule of rival football teams. "Big D" decided the school needed an image of a "MEAN ROOSTER" . . . so that's what I came up with. I also recently re-did the VHS (Vineland High School) Seal.
