Alfred Morris is a former running back who played football for the FAU Owls from 2007 to 2011. Morris is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in FAU football history.
As a freshman in 2007, Morris quickly established himself as a standout player, rushing for 928 yards and seven touchdowns. He followed up that impressive debut with even better seasons in 2008 and 2009, rushing for over 1,000 yards in both seasons and earning All-Sun Belt Conference honors both years.
Morris’s best season at FAU came in 2010, when he rushed for 1,392 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning first-team All-Sun Belt Conference honors and being named the conference’s Offensive Player of the Year. He finished his college career as FAU’s all-time leading rusher, with 3,529 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Despite his impressive college career, Morris was not selected in the 2012 NFL Draft. However, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins, and went on to become one of the NFL’s most productive running backs over the next several years. Morris earned two Pro Bowl selections during his time in the NFL, and rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons with the Redskins.
