Spirit[edit]

Sports teams are called the Hebron Hawks; women's teams are called the Lady Hawks. The school colors are black, silver, and blue. The official school mascot is Harry the Hawk.

Football players are encouraged to "Bring the Wood" (abbreviated BTW) by their coaches and a large plank of wood can be seen at football games with the phrase inscribed on its side. The popular slogan has earned Hebron's stadium the nickname "The Woodshed". "Bring the Wood" was invented by members of the 2000 Freshman Hawks Football team, the first team to win a district championship in football winning the 2000 District 9-4A district championship for Freshman teams.[2]

The hawk talon, raised in the air while singing the alma mater, is made by curling the index and middle finger in the air while bending the thumb toward the palm in a similar fashion and tucking the ring and pinky fingers into the palm completely. Students display this when acknowledging authority at events or at certain times during games.

Alma mater[edit]

The alma mater was written by members of the class of 2002 and 2003.
The melody is taken from the University of Maryland, College Park's alma mater.

The words are:

Hebron you are so grand, finest school in all the land
Together we will fly, as years go by
Hawks soar with pride and grace, flying to a higher place
You stand so strong and true
Go Black, Silver, Blue
(Scream: BLACK, SILVER, BLUE!)
