Money Quote:

A man who knows the feeling of defeat can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to #WIN

Links of Wonder: Here is a Ventura County Star article about Morris from this past fall.

What Does Doug Marrone Think?: According to that article, the coaching staff made Morris the starting field goal snapper just two weeks before the first game, so obviously Marrone and company have a lot of confidence in the walk-on.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: A year later, Morris is still an absolutely prolific Inspirational Tweet Tweeter. If you need your daily dose of good vibes, follow the man.
