Our mascot is a Red Dragon that represents SUNY Cortland spirit and pride. The costumed character that appears at athletic and campus events is named Blaze and serves as a brand ambassador who energizes, entertains, generates excitement and rallies the team and crowd. 

Request Blaze costume

Faculty and staff may book the mascot costume by contacting David Spitale, athletics equipment manager. Please review the costume usage instructions.

Audition to be Blaze

Do you have what it takes? The Athletics Department is looking for student performers who are energetic, creative and have a love of SUNY Cortland. Previous mascot experience is a great asset but not required. The ideal height range is 5'6" to 6'. To learn more and audition, contact Jaclyn Lawrence.
