"DeMeritt is the kind of player who can break a defense’s spirits. He sees himself comparable to DeMarco Murray, a quick yet powerful back who refuses to go down. As seen in his highlight tape, he will get hit at the line of scrimmage, and still use his speed to leave defenders looking at the back of his jersey as he runs in the end zone, wondering what went wrong." NE Gridiron
DeMeritt believes those big plays help fire his team up, allowing a defense to attempt to key in on him while opening up opportunities for other players. He wants coaches to know he is a leader who will always bring his team together. Whether it’s punting, returning kicks, catching the ball out of the backfield, pass blocking, or running the ball, DeMeritt will do anything to help win.
