So does that make them the River River Pilots?
I’m 99% sure they’re just the River “Pilots.” I believe they get the name because Hannibal, the town where River HS is, is also the name of the town in Missouri where Mark Twain was born. Mark Twain, while famous for many great literary works of the Western Canon, was notably a riverboat pilot.
