Merlon plans to continue to pursue a career in buisness and be an Entrepreneur. During his time at Garrett, Merlon's best memories include playing for Laker Basketball. Merlon's offense for the Lakers was a force to be reckoned with and his defense an integral part the teams success. "Merlon has been one of the stars of our program the past two seasons. He works hard at every aspect of being a college athlete on the floor, in the classroom and as a leader off the court. He deserves this prestigious honor," quoted Athletic Director and Head Coach Men's Basketball, Dennis Gibson.
