MJ Morris, Georgia High School Football Daily State Player of the Week
M.J. Morris hasn’t thrown fewer passes in a game this season. He’s also never done more to win a game.
Carrollton’s senior quarterback was 10-of-11 passing for 196 yards and two touchdowns, one a 33-yarder for the winning touchdown with 41 seconds left in a 37-32 victory over fifth-ranked Westlake in the Class 6A quarterfinals. Morris (pictured with head coach Joey King), who is committed to N.C. State, also caught a 25-yard TD pass from himself, rushed for 82 yards and quick-kicked a 41-yard punt that was downed at the 1-yard line.
The victory put Carrollton in the semifinals after five straight seasons of quarterfinal defeats.
