Monique Walker of the Boston Globe has an page/NE">Patriots+news" target="_blank">interesting article on Patriots running back Sammy Morris. Morris is an 11th-year veteran who, though still viable, is nearing his end. He’s always been one of the solid, underrated role players in the game. Morris plans to play as long as a team will have him. But he’s not ignoring the reality of a post-football life.
When Morris decides to call it quits, he can see a future coaching high school or college athletes. Morris, who played at Texas Tech, will have the opportunity to test his coaching skills at his camp July 15-17 at the Army Field in Foxborough.
Morris will team with friend and former Redskins linebacker Devin Lemons for the three-day camp for players ages 8 to 18. The camp is important to Morris, who said he didn’t have the opportunity to participate in similar clinics when he was young.
“There was never an NFL team or even player presence in the [San Antonio] area when I was growing up,’’ he said. “Really, I got my work done just actually playing and practicing . . . and kind of looking back on it I always wished there was something else that I could have done to improve my skills early on and improve on the foundation.
