Best high school mascot in Kansas: Top 5 candidates

From Swathers to Ringnecks, meet the best high school mascots in Kansas

If you take a swather out into the field hunting for ringnecks, watch out for greenbacks, and make sure no Teutons are on your tail.

That's our high school mascot-themed advice in Kansas.

SBLive Sports' love for unique mascots with interesting back stories has been well documented.

We've crowned Hodags and Imps the past couple of years in national high school mascot contests, and now we're taking a spin through every state.

Over the next couple of months we'll go from Alabama through Wyoming featuring each state's best high school mascots, and then give readers a chance to vote for their favorite. Our Kansas poll will post Oct. 19 on www.si.com/high-school and stay open through Oct. 26.

Here are the top 5 high school mascots in Kansas:
