COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- In his post-football career, Shawne Merriman is making movies, working on the NFL Network and even embarking on a career in professional wrestling. And although he's taken up residence in Los Angeles, the Prince George's County native hasn't forgotten where he came from.

On Saturday, Merriman came to Byrd Stadium for his 11th annual coat drive. To date, Merriman has collected over 20,000 coats from generous Maryland fans, which will be distributed locally to those in need and to shelters. Merriman took a few minutes and chatted with Terrapin Times just before the drive began prior to the Maryland -Boston College game.
