Syracuse Football: Get To Know Your Orange Man - #61 Eric Morris

via <a href=""></a>

In today's installment of "Get To Know Your Orange Man", we get to know one of the many Orange walk-ons, Eric Morris. You can catch up on all of the previous player profiles here.

Player: Eric Morris

Number: #61

Position: Long Snapper

Year: Junior

Height: 5'9"

Weight: 227

Hometown: Simi Valley, CA  

High School: Royal High School  

2010 Stats:  N/A...Morris hasn't seen the field yet.

2011 Projections:  We'll see.  Syracuse has scholarship long snapper Sam Rodgers from State College, PA coming in this year, and if he's good enough for a scholarship, you hope he can do it for all four years, but if Morris is the best man for the job he should see the field.  He seemed to be pretty solid this spring.  He's currently listed as the team's first string long snapper.

How'd He Get Here?: There's not too much out there on how Morris came to SU from sunny California, but we do know that he transferred here from SUNY Morrisville before last season.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?:  Neither have Morris listed in their database.

Money Quote: @EMorris61: Talk is cheap no one accomplished anything by just talkin about it get out there and go get what you want. #determined

Links of Wonder:  Here's Eric Morris' Twitter.  He's a good follow if you want inspirational quotes, brief insights into the world of walk-on collegiate athlete, or his thoughts on recent episodes of Tosh.0.

What Does Doug Marrone Think?:  In lieu of any real 'words' on this issue, just check out the picture up top.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest:  Eric is currently enrolled in the Whitman School of Management, and will probably be employing all of us one day.
