Meridian High School announced on Wednesday, May 11, that a trio of senior student-athletes will continue their playing careers at the collegiate level next year.

Marcus McGuinn has committed to play football at the University of Puget Sound. Though he played mostly receiver on offense, McGuinn did a little bit of everything for the Trojans last fall, rushing for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 33 attempts (4.8 average), throwing for 428 yards and five touchdowns and catching 23 passes for 344 yards (15.0 average) and four touchdowns. He was also a key component in Meridian’s secondary.

At Puget Sound, McGuinn will join his older brother, Max, who will be a senior after leading the Loggers with 322 yards and three touchdowns rushing on 73 attempts (4.4 average) and was fourth with 200 yards receiving, helping the Loggers to a third-place finish (6-3 overall) in the NCAA Division III Northwest Conference.

Pitcher/infielder Brady Moore has committed to play baseball at Skagit Valley College next spring. Moore helped the Trojans lock up a trip to the regional round of the Class 1A State Tournament last week in the bi-district tournament.

Alan Eyoub will stay even closer to home, as he committed to play soccer for Whatcom Community College. Eyoub scored 19 goals for the Trojans this spring, including five in a March 24 win over Lynden.
