Cadet Josh Brewton was announced as Texas A&M’s newest mascot corporal on Friday as part of the university’s Family Weekend activities. Brewton will serve as the primary caretaker for Reveille X during the 2024-2025 academic year. 

Brewton is a member of Company E-2 in the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets. Since 1959, Company E-2, known also as the Mascot Company, has had the distinct privilege of caring for Reveille, the official mascot of Texas A&M. 

Over the course of the 2024-2025 school year, Brewton and the rest of E-2’s rising sophomore class will care for and accompany Reveille X to all of her appearances. As mascot corporal, Brewton will serve the university in a high-profile capacity, often speaking on Reveille’s behalf to media, faculty, staff and students and visitors. 

Prior to his selection as mascot corporal, Brewton and the rest of E-2’s freshman class of 2027 underwent a semester-long tryout process. This process involved researching the tradition of Reveille and delivering a series of informative speeches on the previous nine Reveilles.
