A sports mascot designed by BAM Mascots has featured in The Philly Inquirer, after it made its debut for Rowan College at Burlington County's (RCBC) in New Jersey.
The mascot, named Barry the Baron, was introduced to the college at the end of a November with a midday pizza party. This gave students and teachers alike the chance to meet the new mascot, with Barry the Baron posing for selfies and high-fiving his new fans.
What is the inspiration behind Barry the Baron?
The inspiration behind Barry the Baron began 30 years ago when Barry began life as a nameless one-dimensional logo for the college's basketball, baseball, soccer, and other athletic teams.
During these early years Barry was just a head within a helmet on a piece of paper, but a project last spring began to bring the character to life. That was when BAM Mascots designed a custom mascot that the college could use as a marketing tool.
Rowan College at Burlington County's now plans on using Barry the Baron to boost the community college and create excitement and camaraderie among its 9,000 students.

The mascot dons a silvery helmet, holds a “Sword of Truth” in one white-gloved hand and clutches a “shield of knowledge in the other. The mascot will help bring students together, champion high-quality education for all, as well as represent the fighting spirit of RCBC students.
