Expectations, hype soaring in Duxbury!
There isn’t another member of Duxbury’s roster more anxious to begin the season than DeMeritt.
After rushing for 712 yards on 97 carries as a sophomore, DeMeritt entered the 2015 season as Duxbury’s undisputed feature back. In the season opener he torched the B-R defense for 103 yards and a score on just 14 carries.
He sat out the Holliston game in week two due to injury and then suffered a season-ending knee injury after ripping off a 15-yard run against Hingham the following week. Injuries to DeMeritt and others forced Maimaron to assume the role of both quarterback and lead back – posting career-highs in carries (130) and rushing yards (891).
“[Bobby’s] told me that he’s ready to start handing the ball off more and not running for himself,” DeMeritt said. “He’s ready to pass the torch off to me.”
At 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, DeMeritt has added some noticeable bulk to his frame, which should help with injury prevention.
