We're Gonna Miss You, Sammie

Well, it's official: The University of Pittsburgh will be the last college team that Sammie Stroughter gets to make his mark and impression on. Not since Sabby P have we had a Senior leader who showed so much class and resilience in his career that it's actually sadder to see "Sammie Stroughter, the person" graduate rather then the "SS, the player." From his freshman year to this year, he has epitomized everything that a student-athlete should be. He is humble, hard-working, and gracious. Anybody who has had the chance to meet this amazing human being knows just what a great person he truly is. I honestly believe that his leadership will be missed ten times more than anything he brought to the football field, and that's saying quite a bit.

Here's some of Sammie Stroughter's stats:

  • 74 catches for 1293 yards and 5 TDs in his Junior season
  • That same year, he returned 3 punts for TDs, including the photo above against USC
  • This year, he has caught 64 passes for 952 yards and 7 TDs
  • While he didn't return any punts to the house this year, he has had many electrifying punt returns that have put us in excellent field position

We all know Sammie had some personal issues last off-season, but he showed a ton of heart in coming back for his final year and leading this team to yet again another great season. For those who don't know what happened to Sammie, go ahead and read this. Sammie was and will always be one of my favorite all-time Oregon State Beavers. The man from Sacramento is going to go on and do great things.

One of my favorite all-time highlights/calls from Mike Parker involved SS
