About Roebuck

Roebuck was first introduced in 2015 and named in honor of Mike Roebuck, an avid runner, cyclist, and triathlete. Mike had worked at Gardner-Webb for nearly 20-years in roles like Assistant Athletics Director for Academic Services and Director of Financial Aid. Mike passed away unexpectedly on March 4, 2015, yet his name still lived on when a live mascot was introduced.

Roebuck, under the care of Brooke Greene, who raises and sells English Bulldogs is a campus favorite at events for students, community and athletics. Roebuck has been featured in numerous photo and video shoots during his post as the official live mascot.
