Fox earned All-1A Northwest Conference honors last year on offense, and he’s part of a returning group that should make Meridian strong up front on both sides of the ball.
Logan was one of two Trojans linebackers to earn All-1A NWC honors last year, and he’s the top returning receiver for Meridian, with 225 yards and two touchdowns in 2015.
Ames is quite pleased that it’s Meridian, not Mount Baker, that has the youngest Schleimer, though he’s a nephew of the Mountaineers’ standout. He was second on the team with 449 yards and three TDs as a sophomore.
