Chances are you could list off the seven most popular high school nicknames in America without much trouble. You probably coach at one, or coach against a couple of them. That's what makes them so popular, after all.

There are tens of thousands of high schools spread across the 50 states but in any given five-team district, from the Pacific Northwest to South Florida, chances are at least two schools use one of these seven nicknames.
