Frisco High School is named for the City of Frisco, but before the City was Frisco, it was called Emerson. However, the name was too similar to a neighboring town.
In response, the railroad station took the name Frisco City in March of 1902. Frisco was a combination of FR, derived from Francisco; IS, which came from the latter part of St. Louis; and CO, which was for company in honor of the St. Louis, San Francisco and Texas Railway Company.
The town itself was without a permanent name until May 15, 1902 when the local paper proudly announced, “The name of our town is finally settled.” Frisco it was. When the town officially became Frisco, the railroad company immediately dropped the “City” in Frisco City and changed the station name to Frisco as well.
The mascot for Frisco High School originated in about 1924. As the students and staff discussed what the mascot should be, one of the students suggested that the mascot be named for his pet raccoon and the name stuck.
