Garden City, KS-More recognition is coming Garden City's way.
Merriweather leads the nation with 80 tackles. He recorded his third double-digit stop game on Saturday with 15 tackles and a fumble recovery in a 42-16 victory over Fort Scott. He had 20 tackles vs. Independence on Sept. 14 and had 20 in a 42-22 victory over Dodge City in week two.
Ervin has made his presence felt on special teams all season long. The freshman blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown during the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over the Greyhounds. He did the same thing vs. Independence two weeks earlier, giving the Broncbusters a chance at a miracle comeback in the waning seconds.
Garden City is back in action on Saturday, making the long trek to Iowa Central. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
