Thanks, guys.
I still wonder why so many high schools have adopted this same nickname. I hit a search at Google, and more than a thousand middle or high schools turned out to have the same nickname.
So does this 'rebels' simply mean 'rebellious kids'? Does it, by any chance, mean Confederate Army in the Civil War?
