Even though MCC's student nickname the "Hustlers" has a somewhat mysterious history, alumni and fans alike are passionate about the name. Legend has it that the name was selected by the school's first president, Fr. Dolan who was a University of Maryland Terrapin football fan and admired the name of its offensive line - the Hustlers. According to the University of Maryland archives, the Hustlers was the nickname for the offensive specialists under Coach Tom Nugent in 1962. When looking for a name for Brevard's new Catholic high school, Fr. Dolan thought that every team should exhibit hustle, thus the name "Husters" was born.
