Western Michigan Broncos were once called the Hilltoppers, which was a reference to the university’s location on the top of Propect Hill. The name was changed in 1939, when they were newly nicknamed the Broncos in order to avoid any confusion with other schools’ teams such as Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Assistant coach of the football team, John Gill who also served as their head coach later, coined the new nickname following the approval for name change, which was given by the athletic board of the school. In 2011, the Broncos commissioned Revera La Noue, the famous American artist, to create a sixty-five hundred square feet building wrap symbolically representing the athletic teams for the Art Prize competition of 2011.
