HSU's mascot, Hoss the cowboy.

Our New Mascot

HSU spirit has a new face, and his name is Hoss. The name Hoss comes from Eric “Hoss” Cartwright, a character in the television series “Bonanza,” who was played by former HSU student and football player, Dan Blocker. Hoss was paid for by generous donations from our HSU alumni and family.
