Taylor Morin is seeing his football prowess pay off.
Actually, character and academics are playing into it as well.
On Wednesday, Morin (JR WR 5-11 170) picked up his third college scholarship offer when UT-Chattanooga offered him.
On Thursday, Taylor was recognized as a finalist for the US Army Pro Football Hall of Fame Award for Excellence. The award recognizes athletic achievement, academics and community involvement.
“I was super excited to talk to Chattanooga,” Morin said. “They offered me to play wide receiver. I am really impressed with their program and facilities. I hope to get on campus during the summer or fall.”
“Their football program knows how to win and they have a very nice campus.”
Thursday’s honor by the US Football Hall of Fame included a press conference where he was recognized officially as a finalist for the Award for Excellence.
“The Pro Football Hall of Fame is proud to partner with the U.S. Army to pay tribute to the fine young men and women who will shape the future of our country. Congratulations to the 25 finalists in 2018 who exemplify the Hall’s core values of commitment, integrity, courage, respect and excellence,” commented George Veras, Pro Football Hall of Fame chief operating officer and executive producer in a press release.
Each U.S. Army-Pro Football Hall of Fame Award for Excellence finalist will be honored in Canton during the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls in August.
The week continues to be fruitful as Morin plans to visit James Madison on Saturday for the Dukes’ Spring Game. Morin doesn’t hold an offer from JMU yet, but he’s hopeful that he can add JMU to his list.
“I am not sure if they will offer or not, but I am excited to visit. I have been in touch with Coach Dudzik (Outside Receivers) for a while now and hope that they do,” Taylor stated.
Morin’s offer list currently includes UMass, Army and UT-Chattanooga.
