Sam Scroggins, a 6-foot-5, 245-pound redshirt freshman defensive end who transferred from Minnesota to Division I-AA Southeast Missouri State, is the team's long snapper. Scroggins was recruited to play tight end for the Gophers, but moved to defensive end for Southeast Missouri State. Scroggins, who was eligible to play immediately for the Division I-AA Indians, has played in all ten games this season and has four tackles.

Sam Scroggins signed with Minnesota in February in 2004. He did not play last season and was redshirted. Scroggins was named to the SuperPrep Midlands 66 Team. He earned all-state, all-area, all-county and all-city status in his senior year at Florissant (MO) McCluer North.

Scroggins was a two-time all-conference selection who had 14 receptions for 210 yards with two scores during his career. He was named team captain prior to 2003 campaign and was a honor roll student.

Southeast concludes their season on Saturday against Tennessee Tech. Southeast, who was 3-8 last season, is 2-8 this year.
