“It’s a great day for our team, finally having a true identity and moving ahead,” Rogues General Manager Chuck Heeman said. “In the short time we’ve been here in Medford, it’s really obvious that the Rogue theme fits right in with the lifestyle and attitude of the Rogue Valley. We were cheering for Rogues to be the winning name in the contest and we’re very happy it came through that way.”

Following the contest, the Rogues set about designing the team’s logos. Working with CSH International, Inc., the team’s ownership group, the logo was designed by Keith Flynn of Flynnagain Productions.
