Morris did his part, as he threw for a touchdown and led the Pilots (5-4) to a 44-6 victory over Chandler Park.
"Tonight's game—we started off kind of rough with that interception. Then they scored," said Morris. "Then we got the ball back and were spreading the ball really well. My line picked up and did really good blocking like we wanted to. Our defense and running backs were pretty much the story of the game."
Morris finished 4 of 11 for 114 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. And the win gave the Pilots a two game winning streak and a shot of making the playoffs, after a 1-2 record during Morris' absence due to mononucleosis.
However, It was announced during the "Selection Sunday Show" that Morris has played his last game at De La Salle, as the Pilots were not selected to play in the state tournament.
Morris reacted to the possibility of playing his last game Friday night: "Yeah, I have thought about that, it's rough—we're hoping that it's not. If it is (my last game) with my team… going out with a 44-6 win, it can't get much better than that. I mean regardless of how I played, or regardless of how the team played, the outcome of that game was big for us. And it's what we needed to do."
When the selections were finally made, Morris reactions were made public on his Twitter account.
"Let my team down this year this year…Sorry I love all of you," Morris said on his Twitter feed.
"Hard to believe I will never play another game with my best friends again, the ones I went through everything with for 4 years."
Gearing towards Michigan
As Morris transitions from high school to college, he says he will be working hard on his skills, including speed and agility, before he steps on campus next fall.
"I am going to be working on foot work," the five-star quarterback said, "and will doing a lot of speed training to get faster, to get my speed up. And work on a lot of the mental stuff of the game too. Watch a lot of film for sure. Learn all the defenses better."
With the graduation of Denard Robinson, the 2013 Wolverine quarterback position will be up grabs. While current wide receiver Devin Gardner and Russell Bellomy are the expected front-runners to land the job next fall, Morris says he is going to Michigan to compete from day one.
"I mean, you don't go to college with the mindset that you're not going to play," Morris said on the competition. "And as a football player, that why I committed, because I want to play football for The University of Michigan. I am going to go in as a freshman and compete for the job. Devin is there, It's going to be his spot to lose. But I'm going to push him every day in practice—him and Russell (Bellomy)—every day in practice as hard as I can, to reach my goal to be starting quarterback at Michigan."
