Cougar Kickoff Countdown: 99 Days

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Only 99 days left until kickoff!

In 1999 Rob Morris finished his senior season as a Butkus Award semifinalist and a first-team All-America player. He went on to be a first round draft pick in the 2000 NFL draft to the Indianapolis Colts and later contributed to their 2006 Super Bowl XLI victory. Before all of that happened, however, Rob Morris was a freshman at BYU who wanted to play running back more than linebacker. During a practice his freshman season LaVell Edwards pulled him aside and told him:

"I know you want to play running back. I think you can be a really good college running back. If you switch to linebacker, you'll play on Sundays."

Morris played on Sundays for eight years.
