The Eisenhower Senior High School was one of two senior high schools in Hopkins, Minnesota from 1970-1982. The Eisenhower Warriors played the Spartans in the 1970 Homecoming game during which the catch phrase “Spank the Spartans” was used to energize the Warriors. This illustration utilizes the gold and purple colors of the school while depicting a Warrior as beating a silly Spartan on the football field.
