The mythical guy with the wings on his heels would also work.

@lucillelucillelucille did you go to Southern? Golden Eagles

I like Rebels! Or the Black Bear! loll you would have to be a Rebel to understand the loll!

@Cruiser Sure, the lunch meat of the plains would make a good mascot.

@Adirondackwannabe: Good idea but he is already taken by the medical profession (and is also the god of archery – rim shot).

“Mercury/ Hermes”:

Phoenix rising from the flames always works well. Displayed on a fair few football (soccer) teams club crests.

The Badger. Fierce and competitive.

I think that the lines of the logo are perhaps more important than the animal. A squirrel is an amazingly agile animal but just would not cut it as a sports logo! I have found this site which seems to be a japanese artist and I love the horse paintings. Page 7 , Horse Leaping, is particularly stylish. I know that you obviously cannot just use the artist’s work because of copyright, but either getting permission or coming up with your own along those lines could work. Good Luck.

I now apologise to Homoon “Wollock” Chung Youn – a wonderful Chinese artist. I have only just discovered her in my search for an answer to your question and have now taken the time to read about her. Not Japanese after all, sorry.
