Out goes Bo, in comes Bowe

As in Bowe Merin, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound quarterback from Stockton, Calif., who signed a national letter of intent Wednesday to play at Eastern Washington. Here are some video highlights of Merin from last year.

For the season in his only year as a starter at St. Mary's of Stockton, Merin was 73-of-134 for 1,158 yards, 13 TDs and seven interceptions. St. Mary’s finished the year 9-3 overall and won the Tri-City League title with a perfect 5-0 record.



"He has a little bit of everything at that position," EWU head coach Beau Baldwin says. "He has a good head on his shoulders and has moxie – he carries himself well. He has a good, live arm where he can make every throw. He’s athletic in terms of moving and sliding in the pocket.”

Merin suffered a mid-season collarbone injury, "but that wasn’t something we were concerned with," said Baldwin. "We loved his video as a junior and we loved him here at camp."
