Having a "crusader" as a public school mascot could be an issue these days. And a medieval knight who sports a crucifix is a real problem. That's why Champlain Valley Union High in Vermont, has decided to send its Crusader back in time. By the time school opens in the fall Union High will be cheering for something like the Red Hawks or Red Wolves.
