Not THAT kind of "Red" Raiders

At Wauwatosa (WI) East High School, they're dropping the Indian aspects from the nickname Red Raiders and are offering three choices to vote on:

The old logo:

New Choice No. 1

New Choice No. 2

EastLogo2_100.jpg

New Choice No. 3

(By the way, the TE monogram comes from Tosa East, the shorthand way of referring to the school.)

Ah, my old high school.

They unveiled that stupid arrow logo after I gradtuated - had I still been there, I would have submitted a design. Even back then, I couldn't have done much worse.

It replaced an Indian head graphic. They considered changing themes then - to a paladin or pirate - but for some reason stuck with the indian theme.

As far as these designs do, I find them all uninspiring. the TE monogram doesn't make much sense (does a man named Bill use the monogram "B" or "W" on his shirts?).

Slightly bigger graphics:

I'm going to vote for either #3 - not crazy about the wordmark, but I like the shield. It'll look good on its own.

My fiance's alma mater still uses Red Raiders w/ an indian connotation. They use this logo on several sports uniforms and surfaces:

Are you guys the Red Raiders or the Maroon Raiders? Maybe it's this pc screen, but the logo you guys used to have seems like it's straight red; the three examples you listed all have a much darker shade of red. Just a point of curiosity...

...Oh--and btw, by default, I also go with #3.

Yeah, the new logos do tend more toward burgundy than the scarlet of the old logo.

BTW, although I couldn't find a good picture, the football team's helmets are black with a white KC-style arrowhead.

The color is interesting - looks like they're going with a true cardinal, which is the school's official color (the student newspaper is the Cardinal News). Then again, Wisconsin's official color is cardinal, and they've worn candy-apple red for as long as I can remember.

Here are the current football uniforms. Not a great pic, but what can you do:

Ugh. They didn't wear black in my day....

And FWIW, here's the baseball logo:

Gives you an idea of what the TE logo will really look like.

And just to complete the journey down Memory Lane, here's the logo the school used when I went there, 1986-1990:

I had that guy silkscreened on to my shirt when I was on the tennis team....
