Mission and Purpose
UTEP’s beloved, Paydirt Pete, encourages Miner spirit and fan support. Pete keeps our fans entertained with his on the field antics, dancing, and humor. Pete, also, makes many appearances throughout the Sun City spreading Miner spirit! \
Paydirt Pete is excited to attend events on and off the UTEP campus (not available for birthday parties, weddings, or events of that nature.) There is a fee associated with his appearance/performance (cheerleaders are a separate fee of $125). *Appearance fee includes, but not limited to, mileage reimbursement, administrative costs, and costume maintenance.
