The name selected was the San Pedro SeaHawks. No one person picked the name but a prize will be given by raffle. We plan to do the raffle at the pre-season opener this Sunday in San Pedro. We play against Juventus at 3:00 pm at the Ambergris Stadium. Come watch the fun!
The name was chosen last night and it was announced on the Football show on Reef Radio. I will email Marty with the logo.
The name came about because the executive committee had initially thought of the Osprey as the team name because of the Osprey's characteristics - best fisher of all creatures (90% success rate), very territorial, aggressive, etc. But no matter how we tried, we didn't like the sound of the San Pedro Osprey or in spanish San Pedro Aguila's del Mar.
That's when we decided on the contest. But we kept going back to the osprey. That's when I recalled that the Osprey was called a Billy Hawk or a Sea Hawk in Belize (we even have a Billy Hawk Caye). So we decided on SeaHawks because Billy Hawk didn't flow. The logo is still being refined but it is of an Osprey.
BTW, the spanish speaking people are already calling us Aguilas for short, a name we also considered.
Thank's to everyone for participating. We will update the board with the winner of the raffle.
