It’s Game Day, and little Butch T. Cougar is EXCITED! In this enchanting children’s picture book, follow Butch and his dad as they explore an exhilarating Cougar Football Saturday around Pullman, Washington, enjoying everything the best college town around has to offer.
Tony Poston was inspired to write a children’s book about Cougar football after the birth of his son, Jack. He wanted to tell him a story about belonging, as well as a tradition near and dear to his heart. Then he had a conversation with incoming College Hill CEO Jen Gangwish, along with her friend and former Butch, Zach Wurtz, who said he wanted to find a way to offer financial support to students who portray the beloved Cougar mascot at WSU games and events. They teamed up with the WSU Foundation to create the first scholarship of its kind for these students, funded by proceeds from Butch’s Game Day.
Tony Poston is the current CEO of College Hill (collegehill.com), a Pullman-based branded merchandise studio that creates apparel and products for businesses and organizations nationwide, including Washington State University.
Greg Turner-Rahman is a local artist and Head of the Art and Design program at the University of Idaho.
