The eyes of Texas are upon Sam Ehlinger.
The rising sophomore quarterback from Westlake has already developed admirers near and far. Need evidence? Check out this adorable video of a young Texas fan reading a school paper he wrote about his favorite player “Sam the man.”
My son wrote his school paper “If I could meet anybody in the world” on Texas Longhorns QB Sam Ehlinger! @sehlinger3 @bevobeat @jonatha16712267 #StaarTestEssay #HookEm #4thGrade #SamEhlinger pic.twitter.com/s5Izaq4tUa

Here’s the full text of the paper:
“Sam Ehlinger is an excellent football player. Sam took Texas to their first bowl game since 2014 and won the football game. Sam Ehlinger was a fantastic football player as a freshman, and he is also on my favorite football team. If I ever meet ‘Sam the man’ I will tell him to teach me how to throw a football high and far and fast. I think Sam is one of the best college football players. Sam has a lot of yards and Sam is very fast. He can hurdle, juke, do spin moves and he can also truck people. Sam Ehlinger is fantastic. If Sam wants to be in the NFL after college football he should be No. 1 in the draft. If it wasn’t for Sam, Texas wouldn’t have won a bowl game. The Texas Longhorn players play for Sam. I hope one day I could meet Sam Ehlinger and tell him, ‘how did he get so fast and excellent at football?'”
