"Joe" Mason. Third baseman on the 1904 Penn State baseball team, Harrison Joe" Mason is credited with originating the idea of a mountain lion for the Penn State mascot in a prideful boast to a visiting powerhouse baseball team from Princeton:
"Well, up at Penn State, we have Mount Nittany right on our campus, where rules the Nittany Mountain Lion, who has never been beaten in a fair fight. So Princeton Tiger, look out."
