This time of year is the greatest time of year! The clocks fall back, there is a constant chill in the air and the finest football teams are still playing.  That being said, in a strange year of COVID, the top teams aren’t always the ones advancing. But the teams still alive have players that propel their teams to victory. So let’s celebrate the top players of Friday as the #BellRingers who woke up the neighborhood and rocked the party.

Merritt can play any position on the field but as a runner on eight carries, the junior accounted for 183 yards and two touchdowns. He will tell you he is a college receiver and he will be a fine one at that but I think Merritt has fluid hips, exceptional short area burst and closing power to be a shut-down cornerback in college. No matter the position, John Burroughs is going to be a tough team to beat with Merritt
