Meet Sunrise Scooter: Texas Longhorns' Bevo has a new baby brother

Between Bevo and Sunrise Scooter, there's another brother named Sunrise SamE.

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Longhorns mascot Bevo has a new baby brother. Meet Sunrise Scooter!

According to Betty Baker, owner, the brother born before him was named Sunrise SamE after quarterback Sam Ehlinger.

John and Betty Baker have been raising championship cattle for about 30 years in Williamson County.

Besides being a University of Texas graduate herself, their longhorn legacy got started in 1988 when the Baker bovines captured the attention of the UT steering committee while they were showing.

Bevo's brother, Sunrise Scooter, was born in March 2020.

They asked the Bakers if they could use one of their steers as Bevo, and they obliged. The rest is history!

Bevo XV is currently five years old.
