Locals on the Shasta College spring 2021 football roster

For the past six months, questions swirled about the chances of a junior college football season. Fast forward to Saturday and Shasta College is two weeks away from kicking off their condensed 2021 spring season against College of the Siskiyous.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic leaving a lot of uncertainty all over the world, the Knights managed to put together a roster of 69 players who get to play this spring without it counting toward their eligibility clock. That’s an attractive option for players who can put out film and transfer to a four-year before summer hits.

Shasta’s roster features players from nine states and two international students from Australia. As expected, more than half of the Knights are from California (35) while Oregon is well-represented with seven players, followed by Florida, Texas, Washington and Georgia with four apiece.

The Knights are rostering 13 players from Shasta County schools, which makes up about 19 percent of the team. North State football fans will recognize a few more names as another 12 come from other Northern Section schools.

Some of the notable locals include the past two Shasta County Sports Offensive MVP’s — Jayden Gordon (2018) and Brandon Merryman (2019), both of which played quarterback at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro as seniors. Gordon is a running back for the Knights and Merryman is battling for a quarterback spot but could also spend time as receiver where he was one of the best in Shasta County during his junior season in high school.
