  2. How many teams do you represent?
    15
  3. How were you chosen to be school mascot?
    The Hawk is a regional native and is part of campus life and lore. A Hawk soars high above the ground to seek opportunities, and a Hawk is a bird of prey.

    The Buffalo State Bengal, the Fredonia Blue Devil, the Geneseo Blue Knight, the Brockport Golden Eagle, the Oswego Laker, the Cortland Red Dragon, the Plattsburgh Cardinal, the Potsdam Bear and the Oneonta Red Dragon. Occasionally, the Hawk mingles with the Morrisville State Mustang.
  5. What is your favorite campus event?
    It’s too hard to choose—Hugo the Hawk enjoys every team and club equally at New Paltz.
  6. What is your favorite food?
    Pizza and hot dogs from the Half Court concession stand!
  7. What is your favorite television or movie animal?
    My favorite television animal is Henery Hawk from Looney Tunes.

    I enjoy watching the Hawk athletic teams in action!
  9. What’s it like to be a mascot?
    It’s very rewarding knowing that being a Hawk positively influences New Paltz student-athletes.
  10. What do you consider the ideal fan?
    The ideal fan roots for the Hawks and creates a positive atmosphere by not taunting or baiting opponents.
  1. Where are you from?
    I am a true Long Islander, born and raised in Stony Brook, NY, but I'm well-known around the country!
  2. How many teams do you represent?
    I represent 20 Varsity Sports that are members of the America East Conference and CAA (Football) along with the nationally recognized Spirit of Stony Brook Marching Band.
  3. How were you chosen to be school mascot?
    I have been a part of the Stony Brook family since 1995--just a year after the Stony Brook varsity teams became known as the Seawolves. The fourth nickname in Stony Brook history, Seawolves was selected from a list of more than 200 possible names by a 32-person committee comprising students, alumni, faculty, and administrators.
  4. Do you have any friends that are mascots?
    Of course! I am friends with all my fellow mascots in the America East Conference and I am looking forward to meeting new friends next year with our move to the CAA for football. I am also friendly with many of our fellow Long Island mascots in the professional leagues such as Quackerjack from the LI Ducks and Sparky the Dragon from the NY Islanders. In addition, during the summer of 2011 I was fortunate enough to be a part of the 2011 ESPN College Gameday commercial where I met many well-known, collegiate mascots!
  5. What is your favorite campus event?
    My favorite campus event would have to be homecoming which is known as Wolfstock: Long Island's Biggest Backyard BBQ! Nothing is better than seeing all my Seawolves fans, alumni, and friends of the local community come together for a fun filled day at Stony Brook University!
  6. What is your favorite food?
    I like to wolf down everything that's put in front of me!
  7. What is your favorite television or movie animal?
    My favorite movie animal is the Big Bad Wolf.
  8. What do you like to do for fun?
    Besides supporting my campus community and amping up the crowd at Seawolves games, I love to travel around the world! Check out my “Where in the World is Wolfie” travel map to see all the places I have been so far! Click here: http://bit.ly/bytDEp
  9. What’s it like to be a mascot?
    It’s the best job in the world! I get to meet so many different people and represent one of the greatest Universities - Stony Brook!
  10. What do you consider the ideal fan?
    I would have to say that the ideal fan is one who loves Stony Brook, gets their RED ON, goes to as many games as possible and roars with excitement every time we make a great play!
