Peruna Handlers

Peruna Handlers

The Peruna Handlers are a group of four to six people who are selected to care for our live mascot. They are required to give a great deal of attention to our university icon. They are present at football games and make special appearances throughout the year.

Tryouts:

Date: Sunday April 27th
Time: 9:30am START
Location: IM Field

Tryouts will consist of an interview and three timed runs: 120-yard run, 120-yard run with Spirit Flags, and 120-yard run with Peruna. Previous experience with horses is a plus, but not required. For more information or for an application please contact Tracy Veliz at tveliz@smu.edu.
