DOVER, PA – For the second time this season, safety Jared Morris has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, it was announced by the website late Tuesday night. He previously earned the honor on September 4 after picking off a school-record four passes at East Texas Baptist.
This past week, Morris led the sixth-ranked Wolverines to a 26-17 win over No. 11 Birmingham Southern with a team-high seven tackles, including two which went for a loss. He also intercepted a pass, his team-leading fifth of the year.
Through five games this season, Morris, a converted wide receiver, leads the team with five interceptions and a pair of pass breakups. His five picks are third in the Nation. The native of Toms River, N.J., is also fourth on the squad with 28 tackles, with a pair coming for a loss.
Morris and the Wolverines (4-1) are back in action on Saturday, October 13 for Homecoming, when they host Virginia University of Lynchburg at 1 pm.
