Yes. The Heisman trophy in Football originated at this school, which no longer plays football on a big-time level. they have athletic teams in most sports including Baseball and Basketball. It is believed they are known( Nickname fashion) as the Yeomen. Yeoman has a variety of meanings- a Palace Guard ( Beefeater) in UK, a clerical worker, usually female ( In the Navy), and in some quarters it referred to volunteer cavalry. Yeoman service, indeed. Yeoman was also the lowest skill rank in the old Camp Archery association from top to bottom the grades were Yeoman, Bowman, and Archer.
