The July, 2011 issue of Lacrosse Magazine [Page 67] features a full-page photo of DU's unofficial mascot Boone and DU Sophomore Sam White. The photo was taken during DU's thrilling 13-10 victory over Villanova in the NCAA Tournament. Lacrosse Magazine is the official monthly publication of U.S. Lacrosse and has a circulation of over 300,000 players, coaches, parents and fans.
It was a pretty incredible year for DU's unofficial mascot Boone. He flew to Minnesota twice in hockey related activities. Boone met hundreds of alumni and their children at the NCAA Lacrosse Final Four in Baltimore. He followed the DU swimming and diving team to the Sunbelt Championships in Denton, Texas. He also appeared at DU's introduction to the WAC at Magness Arena. And performed a skit with the Pioneer Dance Team during halftime of a DU basketball game
Boone was featured on two ESPN telecasts of DU lacrosse playoff games as well as an ESPN lacrosse music video promo. DU's mascot was interviewed during a timeout on the Jumbotron of the Baltimore Ravens Stadium during the Lax Championships. He also appeared on Coors Field with other Colorado mascots before a Rockies baseball game.
Most important, the student who ran the Boone Program flew to Minneapolis to deliver a giant Get-Well Card to injured hockey player Jesse Martin, signed by thousands of DU hockey fans, students and players. Martin had suffered a catastrophic neck injury that required surgery. Miraculously Martin recovered from the injury.
