Utah State University pole vaulter Sam Nelson went from being a walk-on to a conference champion in his time dawning the Aggie uniform.

The senior from Boise, Idaho won the indoor and outdoor Mountain West Championships in 2018 and earned three All-Mountain West honors. He holds the sixth-best pole vault mark in Utah State history at 5.17 meters. But his most cherished memories in his time with the Aggies are not the first place ribbons he won, but what he was able to accomplish amidst adversity and what he learned from it.
