It’s a very long time ‘til next September. So I thought this question might be fun in getting us through the withdrawals of no games.
Bakersfield College “Renegades”
According to Ms Jerri Ludke, Bakersfield College Archive Director…..
…. During the 1922 season, Bakersfield was playing Santa Barbara State at the Kern County Fairgrounds, and at the game was a bunch of Kern County High School football players sitting in the stands giving the BC players a bad time by rooting for Santa Barbara State. Among the derogatory remarks heard was
“you damn renegades, you’re no good”
the next week, morris chain, a left halfback for bakersfield suggested the name renegades at a team meeting. they agreed, and the moniker “renegades” was born. the name was never officially adopted until 1937
there is a back story about the “renegade Knights” but it has been buried by Scout.com in their archives.

He worked with many comic book writers and fantasy novelists and turned down lucrative positions at places like Disney. I believe he passed away a couple of years ago.
