LOGAN — It was a bit of a bummer of a trip for Captain Aggie, but don’t expect him to quit cheering on his team.
That would be un-Aggie like. Win or lose, Andy Pedersen — also known as Captain Aggie — will not give up on Utah State University athletics. Cheering for his team has been a way of life for more than four decades.
“I’ve been an Aggie for 44 years,” Pedersen said. “I’ve watched highs and lows. It’s been real fun.”
Captain Aggie arrived in Las Vegas March 13 to cheer on the USU men’s and women’s basketball teams at the Western Athletic Conference Tournament. He had an enjoyable time leading USU fans in his chants of: “A-G-G-I-E-S, what does it spell? Aggies, Aggies, Aggies.”
