I have been playing football since I was 6 years old. Everything I have done, I have done on my own, with two very special parents supporting me every step of the way. I was honored to be named First Team All Conference for Cornerback and Wide Receiver, Second Team All Regional for Cornerback, and Honorable Mention my Junior year, and I was also named to the Virginia Max Prep 4-A South All-Underclass Team. I have just recently been named to the First Team All Conference Team for Defensive Back and Wide Receiver and Honorable Mention for defense in 2014. This September, I broke a Powhatan High School Football record set back in 2001 for the most receiving yards in a single game (5 catches for 212 yards and 2 touchdowns). I have been invited to play in the Big River Rivalry All Star Football Game at Randolph-Macon College on December 20, 2014. Along with my "2013 Highlights," I have also attached a YouTube link "Chance Morris 2014 Senior Highlights."
Football is a tough sport, both mentally and physically. I have both of these attributes, and I don't like to lose. I never take a play off, and I am not a selfish, show off football player. I am always there for my team. I was picked as co-captain after having both an amazing offensive and defensive game in 2013 and in 2014. I am an athlete, being a shut down Safety or Cornerback, and having great hands as a Wide Receiver.
I am also a strong and respectful student in the classroom. I finished off my Junior year with a 3.4 Grade Point Average and I currently maintain a 3.5 for my Senior year. My ultimate goal is to obtain a college education, knowing that one day my football career will have to come to an end, hopefully not until reaching the highest level of play.
My dream is to play college football for a school and a community who cherishes football as much as I do. Football is my life, and it is the most important thing to me, second only to my family, being a good person and being a good student. These characteristics are what is most important, and what makes me different from so many others.
