Where are they now: Robert Merrill

This encounter with a former Frog tailback comes to you from one of your own, part of the "massive" network of readers of this blog:

Last night I had to sleep at a sleep clinic because I snore.... random, yes, but not the most random part of this story. You would not believe who my tech was... former frog hailing out of San Antonio Taft... Bobby Merrill... which is pretty awesome because he was my favorite player while we were in school. I was thinking it might be him when I found out his name was Robert and he looked like a ball player.

I asked a few standard questions... where did you go to school etc... When I asked where he was from originally and he said San Antonio, I said "Wait, are you Robert Merrill?" I think he was pretty surprised I knew who he was. I then said "Ah, shit... Bobby Merrill in da house" and he died laughing. We spoke for about an hour... nice guy. I am pretty sure he was even more disappointed than me that he did not get a medical redshirt his senior year, go figure. Anyways, thought I would share this with y'all....

Go Frogs,
