History of the Minutemen

Have you ever wondered how Lexington’s mascot became known as the “Minuteman?”  Back in 1925, Lexington’s athletic teams had no official nickname, so the school began a contest to choose the perfect one.  Although almost every name imaginable was mentioned, it seemed that Lexington High athletes would be named "Cardinals."  However, they were destined to have a much more fitting nickname...

In October of 1925, the Lexington Cardinals traveled to Independence for a football game against William Chrisman High School.  At the final whistle of that game, Chrisman had won by a 6-0 score, but it is to this game that LHS is indebted for their present official nickname.

A sports writer, writing the story for the game, mentioned the "Minute Men" from Lexington, in tribute to their outstanding fight and grit during the game.  When the Lexington fans read this write-up, they quickly dropped the name "Cardinals."  On March 26, 1926, the school unanimously and officially adopted the name "Minute Men" to designate the athletic teams of Lexington
