Spotlight on Rohan Israni
Our New School Mascot
By: Adrian Perez
Me: How did you become mascot?
Rohan: Well, actually I was trying out for the basketball team, but I didn’t get on the team. Mr. Blum gave me an offer to be mascot and I said yes.
Me: How do you think being “The Terrier” will feel like?
Rohan: I think I would feel pressure since everybody will be counting on me to give spirit and good luck to the team.
Me: What is your job as a mascot?
Rohan: The job for the mascot is to give courage to the team when they feel unhappy and irrational.
Me: What do you think the games will be like without our beloved mascot?
Rohan: It will be hard. Some of the players might feel nervous so the mascot has to cheer them up.
Me: Do you think this can be a good opportunity to show what it means to be a mascot?
Rohan: Yes, I thought It was a good opportunity.
