Let’s all agree: Reggie Redbird is a pretty great mascot.
He’s funny. He knows how to pump up a crowd. He’s good with kids. He’s an impeccable dresser.
Reggie is also not afraid to evolve. In fact, Reggie has had several different looks over the years, from feathery to not-so-feathery.
To celebrate Homecoming week, the STATEside crew teamed up with the Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives for a photo gallery of Reggie Redbird photos, then and now.
