In 1984, Dr. Barry B. Thompson and a select group of interested students established a spirit organization and readopted the name Plowboys. The current Plowboys attend most all athletic events along with other campus and community activities. They are familiar to the public because of their purple and white shirts, cowboy hats, and chaps. At athletic events they bring life to the crowd with spirit, energy, and, what they may best be known for, their own special brand of cheers and chants. In addition to this support, they are known for their community service and the numerous social events they sponsor throughout the year.
