He is now in his fourth year of operating QB Country – a training ground for quarterbacks in the area – full time. He also now has QB Country locations in Jackson, Miss., Birmingham and Nashville.
Morris is stationed here in Mobile, however, and works with many of the area’s top high school quarterbacks. So what does he think of this year’s senior crop of quarterbacks in Coastal Alabama?
“It’s a good group,” Morris told AL.com this week. “They are all well coached by their high school coaches and coordinators, and that is important. I think what makes this class different is they are all so versatile.
“The way college offenses are going these days with so many spread attacks, you almost have to have a balanced guy. I think most of this year’s seniors are all athletic enough to get out of bad spots. All of these guys, for the most part, could potentially end up playing different positions in college. That is not a knock on their quarterback ability but more a compliment to their athleticism overall.”
Here is how Morris broke down some of the areas top senior QBs:
Grey Jackson, Fairhope: “Grey is another versatile guy. He can make all the throws. He is a tough, physical, pounding quarterback with deceiving speed. He is a guy who is just as strong in the fourth quarter as he is in the first. He’s a great leader.”
Reid Rials, Satsuma: “A guy you can trust in crunch time. He is fast – one of the better 200-meter runners in the county. He comes from that QB background and football family, and you can tell. Reid is comfortable in the big moments.” Rials committed to South Alabama as an athlete this summer.
Tyler Cameron, Foley: “Tyler is the biggest of the bunch. He is every bit of 6-3 ½. He has a big arm. I’ve heard college coaches say his highlight film will match up with any in the country. He is a quality, pro-style guy.”
Chris Weaver, Saraland: “Chris will do whatever it takes to win. He leads by effort and action. In my opinion, he and (Baker QB) Burt (Chappell) are two of the toughest football players around.” Weaver committed to ULL this summer.
Some other senior quarterbacks in the area to watch include Rodney English(LeFlore), Nathan Harris (Gulf Shores), Dylan Smith (Robertsdale) andLuke Phillips(St. Luke’s) and Chandler Rigdon (Chickasaw).
