Simon Burkett

Junior QB

As a sophomore, Burkett passed for 1,374 yards and 16 touchdowns. Coach Bob Ames said, “His grandma was nice enough to send him to a bunch of summer passing camps,” and the Trojans hope to reap the rewards.

Brenten Fox

Senior OL/DL

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.

Andrew Logan

Senior TE/LB

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.

Tony Schleimer

Junior RB/LB

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.

Relationship of Jed and Tony Schleimer corrected Sept. 6, 2016.
