Winona State vs. Minnesota State-Moorhead Recap
Chris Samp once again led the Winona State Warriors to victory in a game that was over as soon as he stepped off the bus. The Warriors prevailed 42-0 on the Dragons home turf, wrapping up a share of the NSIC title in the process. Samp was held to four catches for 89 yards, but had two scores in turning the game into a blowout. His low yardage total was partly due to specialized gimmick defenses in which the Dragons defense had six players covering him, and several of them had baseball bats. In addition, as the game got out of hand, Samp was replaced by an 8-year-old from the Make a Wish foundation, who ended up with 6 catches for 80 yards after receiving five minutes of instruction from Samp.

I see in Chris's bio on the Winona website his grade has been change from Junior to Senior. Can I expect Chris's name to be thrown around the "war room" this spring or next? My clients want to know.
is that THE Ron WOlf? It has a packers email address? O man
Samp is my kind of kid. Tough, tall, can catch over the middle and runs the deep ball well. The Bears would be fools not to take him this April.
I saw the Make a Wish kid too, no arms or legs and paralyzed, could only catch with his mouth, that's how good Samp's coaching was.
