Twenty -six years ago, Bill Durham a then Florida State student came up with an idea for the perfect mascot for F.5.U. However, it wasn ' t until Bobby Bowden first arrived in 1976 that his dream actually came true. Bowden wanted a mascot and he and wife Ann helped Bill put together the legend we now know as Renegade and Chief Osceola. This pair first raced down the field of Doak Campbell Stadium on September 16, 1978 — com- plete with an authentic Seminole costume and flaming spear. Thus began a tradition that today ten years later is stronger than ever. Since the beginning, there have been six riders and two horses who have filled the Chief Osceola and Renegade roles respectively. In order the riders are: Jim Kidder, David Mayes, David Williams, Jeff Ereckson, Greg Ereckson, and Jim Fairfield. The current horse is owned by Bill Durham and is a twenty year old Apaloosa who is a frosted red roan gelding. For those who haven ' t seen the pre-game show, it goes something like this: crouching low over Renegade ' s outstretched neck, Chief Osceola bran- dishes a flaming spear which he plants at a dead run on the fifty yard line. Thousands of garnet and gold balloons are released into the air just as the spear hits the ground. Then the pair sweeps down to the far end zone, as the F.S.U. cheerleaders and team come out onto the field, and are greeted by the screaming crowd which has been whipped into a frenzy by the show. Cover design by Jana M. Fentress.
