THE BOOK

Don DiJulia  (Director of Athletics, Saint Joseph's University):

Jim Brennan had a vision…he breathed life into the Hawk mascot which has become legendary and the most decorated mascot in college sports. Its unique style and motion has captured the fascination of thousands around the world. This undying spirit (The Hawk Will Never Die) at Saint Joe’s is not just a slogan but a lifestyle! Hope you enjoy the stories of the men and women who have proudly represented the University for the past 57 years!


Phil Martelli  (Head Basketball Coach, S.J.U. and winner of NCAA "Coach of thE Year"):

The Hawk is the only mascot in the country who is considered a member of the team. Truly a symbolic icon throughout college basketball, I couldn’t imagine one of my teams taking the floor without being lead out by the Hawk.
“The Hawk Will Never Die!” isn’t a slogan; it is a way of life for all who have worn “Saint Joseph's” across their chest. On the road, many times, people will ask me about my team but more about the Hawk. The young men and women who have worn the costume with so much pride and class, have never once expressed an interest in being the Hawk because of the scholarship money involved, but rather because of desire to be part of something bigger than themselves.
