Blaze the Mascot
Blaze, UT Arlington's mascot, debuted in the fall of 2007 at the men's and women's basketball games in Texas Hall. Students selected the horse to replace the Sam Maverick cowboy persona in spring 2007 elections. In a naming contest, Blaze prevailed from a list of 10 options in online voting.
Blaze uses high energy and enthusiasm to promote school spirit at athletic, community and campus wide events.
