SOMERSET, Ky. -- The beloved mascot of Somerset High School has been selected to represent Kentucky in Round 2 of USA Today's Best Mascot Contest, and the competition is jumpin'!
Cecil the Briar Jumper was selected out of five Kentucky high school mascots to go on to the "regional competition" of the Best Mascot Contest. He faces such competitors as the Silent Warrior of the Alabama School for the Deaf and the Key West Conchs.
Students at the independent school in Central Kentucky have rallied support for Cecil, and are hoping that their small school can leap all the way to the Nationals with the help of their fellow Kentuckians.
