Our Logo – The Palmetto “P”
The Palmetto “P” has always been a trademark signature of Palmetto’s athletic programs. Although the “P” has altered throughout the years, the official “P” of the current Palmetto Athletic programs is depicted here:
The current rendition of the Palmetto “P” was a product of current Head Football Coach Dave Marino and was adopted by the Palmetto High Athletic Booster Club, PalmettoTigers.com, and throughout the Palmetto High Sports Network.
Adopted in the late 90s, The Cowbell has grown into a popular tradition at Palmetto Football games. Possibly derived from a tradition honored at the nearby Tampa Bay Rays, the cowbell honors the agricultural history of the City of Palmetto and been a fan favorite for over 20 years.
Hats off to The Band
