Look Around Lubbock: Saddle Tramps

Posted: Updated:

The Saddle Tramps are an all-male spirit organization focused on furthering the spirit and upholding the traditions of Texas Tech University. Formed by Tech student and head cheerleader Arch Lamb, Paul Bowers, and Bud Thompson in 1936, this organization supports men's athletics at Texas Tech. The name Saddle Tramp came from the stories of traveling men who would come to a farm for a brief time, fix up some things and move on. Lamb said he decided that he could fix up some things himself before moving on, and the Saddle Tramps were born. These Midnight Raiders wrap the campus and Will Rogers statue with red and black crepe paper before every home games, form the legendary "Bell Circle" moments before kickoff, ring Bangin' Bertha, participate in parades and other campus events including the Carol of Lights, the Homecoming Bonfire, and Raider Red, and ring the Victory Bells after Red Raider victories.
