Male is off to a 5-2 start with three games left. The Bulldogs have been very balanced, but one of their top playmakers is running back Ronjae Morris.

Morris, as a sophomore, rushed for 998 yards and twelve touchdowns. This season he's on pace to surpass those numbers. Going into this weekend, Ronjae had 652 yards on only 69 carries and 6 touchdowns.

"I think my season is going good so far," said Morris. "I'm still hungry for more though," he said.

Morris had an MCL sprain that occurred two weeks ago and was supposed to sit out but he decided to tough it out.

"I knew my team needed me though a tough situation. I would never let them down, so I stepped in and played my role," he said.

With three games left over, Morris feels like Male has a chance to do some big things.

"I think we will be good down the stretch. This is a team that doesn't give up. We fight to the sound of the horn in the fourth quarter," he continued.

The 5-foot-9, 150-pound back is seeing his recruitment slowly pick up as the season progresses and the schools see his production. And now he's hearing from several quality programs. "I'm hearing a lot from Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Cincinnati, UCLA and Michigan. And a lot from Illinois," he finished.

Morris also got a chance to check out Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

"My visit to Tennessee was great. It was a good experience for me to due to crowd and the atmosphere," he said.

Morris and Male have a week of before facing Southern next week. They finish off the season against Fern Creek and Manual.
