Every so often you come across an athlete that is special. You can’t really put your finger on it but something about them is just special. Well when Jamarious Morgan walked through our doors this past summer we knew immediately he was special. He is a soft-spoken, polite, hard working, extremely talented young man. He always shows up on time ready to work and even though he may not always feel like it, he puts in the work. His superhero comparison is on point. He’s lighting fast like The Flash and impressively strong like Superman. On the football field, it’s amazing to see the way his body bends and moves as he breaks tackle after tackle on his way to the end zone. The athletic abilities that he displays are quite simply amazing. That combined with his warming personality and witty jokes makes him a pleasure to coach and this month’s Athlete In The Spotlight.
