New Red Wolf Mascot "Howl" Joins "Red" at Red Wolves Stadium

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -- The ASU Red Wolves kicked off their home opener with a lot of fun and excitement for fans.

Between the first and second quarters of the game, spirit character "Red" introduced the newest member of the Red Wolves family.  The Red Wolf "Howl" helped energize the already howling fans to encourage their team onto victory.

Since the announcement last fall that the new mascot for Arkansas State University would be the "Red Wolves", many fans have been wondering what the actual mascot you see on game day would look like.  Now, they won't be wondering any longer.

ASU Assistant Athletic Director of Athletics for Marketing and Promotions Gleen Hart says the fans seem to be very receptive of, not only the idea of the new mascot but the physical mascot they saw on Saturday.
