If you want a more exciting person to base a LaRue County school on though, why not Abraham Lincoln? He was born there after all.

There might be some other schools in some other place that take on an Abe Lincoln persona in some other state, but we'll have to wait to see.  Also I really wanted to have a school be able to honor Native Americans, thus LeRoux was named for Danny Little Bear. In the end of the series (whenever that may be) I'll definitely come back and create some rivalry series amongst some teams from different conferences that will most likely include one surrounding Abraham Lincoln with teams from Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky.

Is that Commodore logo based on Perry the Platypus? My daughter loved that show. 

Yes, the idea is that Danville, Kentucky is near a town called Perryville, named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (the namesake for the college) who is dubbed the Hero of Lake Erie. So like the Mighty Ducks, Commodore College partnered with Disney for their nickname and mascot.

Named for Warren Elmer Blackhurst, a local author who lived in the area his whole life and wrote stories surrounding the life of people in Southeastern West Virginia. The athletic teams are named for one of his more well known books, Riders of the Flood.

Short answer: Yes. After the current Appalachian region conference (one more team in West Virginia left), I currently have 11 out of 12 logo sets drawn for a conference based in the Mid-Atlantic region, followed by a couple of logo sets for a conference based in the New England region. The plan from there on is to move to the Great Lakes region westward, probably ending in either the PNW or California. I hope to have at least two teams in each state, but not every state has two viable locations without a current university and intriguing local tie-ins. If you happen to have a local city or town that has some intriguing history, I’d love to consider it for the series. Here is the map I’ve been using for all of the teams and conferences.
