Morris Earns SBC Player of the Week Honors

Alfred Morris (Florida Atlantic, So., RB)

Alfred Morris entered Saturday’s Shula Bowl versus FIU second in the Sun Belt with an average just over 112 yards per game. The sophomore needed 145 yards to become the league leader, a goal set by the off ensive line. Morris ran for 72 in the fi rst half and just like all of Morris’ yards they came after contact and by eff ort. The FIU Panthers pushed the Owls never allowing a leads that would provide an opportunity for FAU to run the ball for game control. Through the second half Morris continued to chip away at the total. Going into the last drive of the game for the Owls Morris had 124 yards. Following a penalty, FAU’s fi rst play of the drive was a pass. The second was a four-yard run by Morris, a nine yard rush followed. Morris added a yard to move the chains and then saw junior quarterback Jeff Van Camp tally a 10-yard run to the FIU 20. Morris fi nished the drive with a 20 yard run to the end zone to capture the rushing title with 158 yards in the fi nal game of 2009 and, all on the final run of the game.

Bam Bam is hands down FAU's MVP this season.  Can you imagine where we would be without him?  He seems like one of these kids who is all business which is nice.  I love how he runs off the field after the game with his helmet on.  He isn't looking to see who is watching him.  I hope he is motivated to improve on his great season and crack the top 5 in FBS rushing yards next season.

I am worried like past FAU underclassmen who have had big years, he will peak as a sophomore ala Rusty, Gent, Polo (freshman).

A lot of that will depend on Van Camp so that they can't stack 8 or 9 in the box, if they try then Van Camp should be able to burn them deep a lot! But then that will also depend on a young, inexperienced line, another reason they will probably stack the box!

And that means you find a way to counter that….
