No More Boise Hawks?
The Boise Hawks have been a staple in this community for many years and now, there's a chance they'll be no more.
Well at least not like we know them. Talks about re-branding the Hawks are on and part of that rebranding is a name change. According to BoiseDev.com ideas floating around are the Boise Chukars, Boise Rapids, Boise Rocks -- and even Boise Sheepherders.
CCDC board member Scott Ludwig and Boise Mayor Bieter have been brainstorming different ideas with the rebranding but ultimately it'll come down to us, the fans. Ludwig stated...
"Oh there were about 30 names that the Mayor and I came up with. As you can imagine he liked the Sheepherders.....lol"
President, partner, and co-owner of the Boise Hawks Jeff Eisman says re-branding the team is a big IF. He does state that if that were to happen, the fans would be a huge part of the decision making process and the rebranding. That includes the name.
