Morton Returns for Southwest Dekalb.

Frank Morton is an active defensive tackle prospect from perennial power Southwest Dekalb High School in Decatur, GA. His team had what can be considered a down year for them, and Morton is ready to make up for it this season.

"We didn't do so good," said Morton. "We went 6-5. It's time for some pay back on all of those teams," added Morton with a laugh. "I think we have some really good senior leadership, and we have about 12-15 starters coming back on the team."

Morton was a destructive force last year. He started on both sides of the line of scrimmage, but he projects on the defensive side of the ball. Like most defensive linemen, Morton is a bit nasty.

"I like playing defense the best. I like flinging guys out of my way and going to sack the quarterback," said Morton laughing again. "When I pancake some guy on offense, I like to get under his shoulder pads, but sometimes I get called for holding doing that. On defense, I don't have to worry about holding."

Morton is 6-4 and 280 pounds with excellent quickness at 4.9. He was a force on the defensive line last year with 128 tackle, eight sacks, and 24 tackles for loss.
