HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Auditions are being held this weekend for Marshall University’s new mascot.

The student auditions are set for Sunday afternoon at the Memorial Student Center in Huntington.

Applications are being accepted at www.marshall.edu/bemarco .

Two students played the part of Marco this year - Ben Heil of Dayton, Ohio, and Drew Navy of Huntington. Marco won the 2013-14 Conference USA mascot title in a vote by fans.

Next year marks the mascot’s 50-year anniversary.
