The Yuma mascot is in reference to the old Yuma Territorial Prison. An unpleasant place for sure.

Where the Yuma High school held classes and beat the snot out of rival schools in football. ie: the criminal name stuck.
Pretty cool story.
The Yuma Prison has quite a history back in the day, opened in 1876.

We're over it, just wish you would stay up North and not come down here and try to fix what aint broke.
You know Blume you are exactly right....I've got some transplants I'm courteous to and friendly with but they sure Rosie O'Donnell about a lot of things we embrace here in the south. I keep telling them to just stop it !!!!!

Back in the mid 50's, my mother and her bf drove from TJ to Yuma, just to take a case of booze back into CA. At that time, CA only allowed one bottle. AZ entry was unlimited. Don't remember anything about Yuma though. I must have blinked.

To the OP’s point. Lots of schools have Pirates, and Buccaneers. Nobody minds.

Known for rape pilage and plunder definitely criminals. Can you imagine a team with the name the Rapists?
