Richard Stockton College unveils new sports logos

  • 0

Richard Stockton College announced its new athletic identity with the unveiling of three logos Wednesday.

The centerpiece of the Ospreys' new look is a dynamic bird head. In its announcement, Stockton said the new image is intended to be "more aggressive" than the previous triangle logo it replaced.

The change marks the first major overhaul of the Stockton athletics design since 2000, when the department began using a logo designed by then-student Michael Mezzacappa. The emblem was tweaked in 2009 when the accent color was changed from red to blue to match the college seal.

Two of the logos, including the new Osprey head, feature the Stockton Ospreys wordmark that has been in use since 2000. The third will be the Stockton "S,"which the college introduced last year. The "S" served as the basis for the new athletics brand.

All three logos were designed by Gary Schenck, a 1996 Stockton graduate.

The new identity points Stockton's athletics forward while remaining true to its roots. The new logo minimizes the use of the blue accent that was prominently featured in the old logo in favor of the school colors of black and white. The blue trim and gold eye are consistent with colors that appear in the Stockton College seal.

The new look will be phased into team uniforms and signage over the next few years due to budget constraints. The men's soccer, women's soccer, men's basketball, women's lacrosse and women's rowing teams are slated to receive new uniforms this year. All new practice gear, team apparel, promotional items and banners will feature the new logos.
