High School Sports Names

Could there possibly be any worse nicknames in the state of Illinois, than the Effingham Flaming Hearts and not to be outdone, the Bloom Blazing Trojans?
 
#2
Cobden Appleknockers
Freeburg Midgets
Centralia Orphans
Hoopeston Cornjerkers
Fisher Bunnies
Freeport Pretzels
Teutopolis Wooden Shoes

I think Cairo's women's teams used to be the co-pilots.

I'm sure I'm missing some as well. It is worth noting that while these mascots may seem odd I'm sure they are revered in each community.

There's a special place in my heart for the Cornjerkers. Yeah, I'm weird.

There were four guys from Hoopeston on my dorm floor freshman year. We took a road trip to a Cornjerkers basketball game and their cheerleaders were literally wearing cut-off bib overalls.
