Junior Profile - Jason Morris

Jason Morris is a 6-0, 170-pound QB from Mill Creek (Wash.) Jackson. While teammates Craig Chambers and CJ Marsh grab most of the spotlight, Morris is the man behind the scenes, the distributor on offense that gets the Timberwolves where they need to go.

"Well, I've been the starting quarterback since 10th grade," Morris told Dawgman. "I consider myself a playmaker. I'm a quarterback that can run and throw. We do option all the time too."

The numbers back Morris up. In 8 games he threw for 1400 yards and 17 touchdowns, while only giving the ball up 3 times. He also ran for 500 yards. His work earned him first team all WesCo 4A honors, a pretty nice accomplishment for a player that didn't even make it through a full season. "I tore a muscle in my knee but still played for two games," he said.

Physically, Jason runs a 4.47 40, vertically jumps 33 inches, benches 225 and squats 405 pounds.

So what's it like playing with one of the premier receivers on the West Coast in Chambers? "It's awesome," said Morris. "He's always open, and when you want to throw the fade it's so easy to do it to a 6-5 guy. He can go out there and get it every time."

Jason knows that the Timberwolves are just a step away from fulfilling their promise as football players. "We just need to come together as a team," he said. "We can do it. We were able to do it last year at times. We beat Kamiak when they were 8-0."

Washington, Oregon, Oregon State and Penn State are just a handful of the teams that have already sent Jason literature about their schools. "Hawaii asked for tape, so I'm sending them some," he said. "Colorado too."

With his size, Morris has the ability to do a lot of different things on the football field. "Oregon is recruiting me on offense," he said. "Oregon State and U-Dub are recruiting me as a quarterback and as an athlete too." His current favorites are Oregon, Oregon State and Colorado.

"I went to Junior Day with Richy (Mulcahy)," Morris said about his trip to Montlake to check out the Huskies. "I've always been a U-Dub fan. CJ (Marsh) was there too. The best part was checking out the locker rooms and the tunnel. It was a great experience."

A side benefit of Junior Day was getting a chance to see the best of the best when it came to the state's best talent. Morris fit in well. "Seeing the guys that were there, I know I can play against anyone there, no problem," he said.

Jason knows a big part of earning a scholarship offer starts soon. "I'm going to our team camp at Western (Washington)," he said when asked about his summer plans. "I'm going to check out Washington State unofficially and I'll probably check out Idaho too since it's so close. And we are all going to the Nike camp in Oregon too."
