When Abby Baumgardner arrived at her Senior Varsity volleyball game, she expected to warm-up and play a killer match to win. She never could’ve guessed what the mascot had in store for her, though!

According to The Daily World, Abby noticed during warm-ups that the mascot was acting bizarre and she was getting annoyed by its behavior.

She said, “I had no idea who it was at first. We have a new (student playing the) Bobcat, so I was so scared. I was like: ‘Oh my gosh, this new Bobcat is a creeper.'”

But then, the mascot took off his costume and revealed his true identity: It was Abby’s brother-in-law, Bradley Heden.
