Athlete of the Week: Payton Merket


Congratulations to our Athlete of the Week: Borden County’s Payton Merket!

The senior helped paved the way for the Coyotes in their 56-0 mercy-rule win over Sands. He finished the game with five total touchdowns (three rushing and two passing). Defensively, Merket contributed with five tackles, including a sack.

In the team’s two district games, Merket has been nothing short of spectacular. He’s rushed for 256 yards and seven touchdowns on just 12 carries, completed seven of eight passes for 198 yards and two TDs.

As a team, Borden County has put together a three-game winning streak after suffering back-to-back losses for the first time since 2013. On the season, the Coyotes are now 6-2 (2-0) and ranked as the ninth-best six-man team in Division I by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.
