AU to introduce Li’l Alf at men’s soccer game vs. Pitt-Bradford

ALFRED, NY – Alfred University’s newest Saxon personality makes its debut Wednesday night when the AU men’s soccer team plays its home opener vs. Pitt-Bradford.


Li’l Alf, the University’s new mascot, will escort students on a mini-parade from Ade Dining Hall to Merrill Field beginning at 6:30 p.m., proceeding to the field prior to the game’s 7 p.m. start. The mascot will be present at various AU athletic events throughout the year.


Li’l Alf will soon be joined by Alfred the Great and his trusty steed Alden (an Anglo-Saxon name meaning defender). The Saxon warrior makes an inaugural appearance at the football home opener, Saturday, Sept. 14, at 1 p.m. against RPI.
