Welcome to the Kat Pack

In all the years of Sam Houston State's existence, in all the hundreds of thousands of students who have roamed its hills, there is a very special, very elite group of a couple dozen people.  This small group of people share a common bond that not many can understand.  It's a bond forged in heat and sweat.  It's a kind of fraternity, if you will.  A Brotherhood of the Fur.  Thousands of people have seen them, shaken hands with them, laughed at them.  And most people never even knew who they were.

These people are people who have been Sammy Bearkat, the official mascot of Sam Houston State University.  And this blog is for them.  For you.

This is a place to connect with other former Sammys, to share stories, events and thoughts.  Have a great story from when you were Sammy?  Share it here.  Have some photos from back in the day?  Post them here to share.

This blog doesn't belong to any one person.  It belongs to all of us.  And it will be what we make it.

So let's have fun.  Let's connect and reconnect.  And let's revel in the fact that we are Sammy Bearkat alumni.


  1. James, thank you for everything that you've done for Sammy over the years. I owe a lot of my success to you.

  2. The student has become the teacher, grasshoppah. YOU are the Jedi Master now.

  3. Would be rad to be listed with the contributors up there. But James is jealous of my amazingnessness.
