According to the Massey Ratings Mascot Database, 153 high schools in the United States employ some form of “wolves” as their official nickname. Common variations include colors like “red” or “grey” or other descriptions such as “timber” attached to the wolves moniker, but only one school community identifies itself as the “Curley Wolves” - Prescott High School (PHS) in Prescott. Arkansas. For as unique as PHS’ surname is, it never would have a become a reality without a poor choice of words on the part of an Arkansas Gazette (now Arkansas Democrat -Gazette) reporter. In the early 1920’s, during the lead-up to a football game between Prescott and heavily favored Little Rock High School, the Gazette reporter interviewed Little Rock’s head coach for his perspective on the upcoming contest. While the coach spoke respectfully of the Prescott team and told rhe reporter that he was expecting “a hard game”, the quote showed up in the newspaper as “a good workout”, lighting a motivational fire under the Aggies (PHS’ nickname at the time). Prescott went on to a convincing victory and confirmed their inspiration that evening with a telegram addressed to the reporter: “What do you think of the workout we gave your Tigers this afternoon? Prescott High School Football Team.” In response, the reporter acknowledged Prescott’s big win with under the headline: “WE THINK THE BOYS ARE CURLY WOLVES”, most likely referring to the old Western slang term “curly wolf”, which Merriam-Webster defines as “a tough, objectionable character”. That headline, along with the ensuring article, was read aloud at PHS’ celebratory all-school assembly the following Monday, and after a unanimous vote, the “Prescott Curl(e)y Wolves” became permanent.
