The Coyote was first introduced in public at a Spurs game back in 1983. Since then the fans of San Antonio have been treated to some of the best courtside entertainment going. Widley know for his trick filled antics, the Coyote can be seen riding a unicycle, pulling his eyes off, dribbling a ball with his feet, spinning a ball on a pen, and just plain creating havoc.
When looking to describe the Coyote one might say he is funny, athletic, and typically the brunt of the joke. Whether its a lighthearted impromtu interaction with a game official durring a timeout, a rehearsed skit, a dance number with the Silver Dancers, a slapstick comedy routine or just getting the fans fired up for crunch time durring an important part of the game, the Coyote makes the experience of coming to a Spurs games more than just basketball. Its an event!
Outside of his presence in arena at games the Coyote understands and recognizes the importance of being a community leader. Coyote performs at over 400 community appearances per year. This is noted as being more than any other mascot in the NBA.
Coyote is also no slouch when it comes to being in the lime light. Over the years Coyote has been featured in numerous local San Antonio area TV commercials, appeared on national morning shows including Regis and Kathy Lee, and National Commercials to name a few.
Ever the constant entertainer, community leader, and role model, there is no question as to why the Coyote finds himslef on the ballot for consideration into the Mascot Hall of Fame.
