St. Frederick running back Ron Morris is the Cooper Buick GMC High School Hero of the Week for Week 5 of the high school football season. Morris ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns on seven carries in a 41-6 win over Delta Charter.
Morris received 487 of the 1,350 votes, 36.07 percent. Laderick moore (D’Arbonne Woods) and Jaylan Holt (Oak Grove) finished second and third, respectively, just 49 votes apart from one another. Mangham running back Abdullah Rhone and Ouachita Christian quarterback Grant Fitzhugh were also in the voting.
The News-Star: (St. Frederick) Coach (Jeff) Tannehill was showing me highlights of the game and you look like you have some pretty good second-level moves. Is that something you pride yourself in?
Ron Morris: Yes sir.
TNS: How much of that is your offensive line getting you to the second level and how much of that is you having a move for when you get there to break it beyond the linebackers.
RM: It’s all them (the offensive line), and the receivers, too. The receivers don’t get a lot of credit for their blocking.
TNS: Do you have a specific set of moves you go to when you get to the second level, or do you simply go where the open field is?
RM: Whatever is working, wherever the open spot is. Whatever I can do to make them miss.
TNS: Are you aware of the expectations on running backs in this district (District 2-1A)? A lot of teams in this district rely on running the ball and sometimes the team that runs the ball most effectively win.
RM: Yes sir. I feel like I’m under a lot of pressure. The team is counting on me and I do everything I can to help us win.
