Sam Merrill

Post by Usu0505 » March 17th, 2019, 8:11 am

I’m sure I speak for most but Mountain West POY and tournament MVP could not have went to a more deserving and amazing kid. He is such a great representative of Aggie basketball and the ultimate competitor.

I was not even close to deeming him The Aggie GOAT (can only remember thru to the 90’s) but his play this year has convinced me otherwise. Great job Sam!!

Go Aggies!!!!

Sam is my favorite Aggie hoopster. I’m so glad he played so well.

He hasn't been shooting that great but is getting it done one the line, and on defense, and every where else.

I hope his knee is OK.

I love that he grew up an Aggie. Put in his work for two years and now is on top of the world.

Crazy that he isn’t shooting great but still putting up his average and above

Great players find a way to score even when shots aren't going down like they used to. I hope Merrill goes bonkers in first NCAA tournament game.

I am ready to move Sam ahead of Jaycee on my all-time list. That kid is something special.

Love that Sam knew that the Aggies had a team that won 30 games and went to the tourney as a 12 seed.....and said it in the post game press conf. Smith and Sam are both making great statements to the press. I believe their comments will help the selection committee do this team justice.

I believe Sam. This team isn't about individual accolades. They want to win. They have a chip and a chair. Let's play!

Sam's an Aggie. Great man. Great representative of USU. He played football with my son and always asks about him. Great example.
