The Pee Dee Vipers' mascot Striker proved to be the fan favorite when it comes to off-court talent and entertainment.
In what was a tight battle against Finley (Rochester Razorsharks) and Dunkin(Indianapolis Diesels) the Vipers' mascot received the most facebook votes for the league's coolest mascot.
Not only is Striker known for his crazy antics at Pee Dee's home games but he has also been spotted all across the Florence, South Carolina area taking part in helping his community.
On Sunday, May 18th in Rochester, New York the Rochester Razorsharks joined 3,000-plus solo walkers who were in attendance for the 2014 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.

With help from the Razorsharks the Rochester walk raised nearly $194,000 between individual and major company donations.
