Not your average goat
OUR MASCOT BENJI THE “RAM”
WHO IS BENJI?
Benji is the pet goat of Round Rock Soccer Clubs owners, Edgar and Janna. They raised him as a newborn when his mother could no longer nurse in order to keep him healthy and safe. Benji became so well adapted to humans that he preferred his human companionship and learned fun animal tricks such as knocking on the door and knowing his name.
After just a few months Benji outgrew his human home and had more intrest in the ranch life with his other goat friends. Benji loves his home, his animal friends and is even leader of the group!
Way to go Benji!!
HOW DID WE CHOOSE OUR MASCOT, THE RAM?
Before the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex was built we would train players and run camps at the same ranch fields Benji stayed. It didnt take long for the players to adapt to Benji and within time before the start of our first UPSL season in 2018 we decided to run a poll to choose our club mascot. Many wanted Benji but one jokingly suggested dressing him as a Ram, stating “it just had a ring to it” and they were right,. soo after publicly posting a poll online for mascots, Rams was the majority winner!
Benji the goat became our club mascot the Ram…
