It took hanging out with a bunch of Little League baseball players for Alfred Morris to be inspired with a new touchdown celebration.
During the Redskins’ organized team activities in May, Morris became quick friends with teammates from the York and Lee County All-Star baseball squads who were staying in the same hotel as the Redskins rookie running back.
“I met with them and was hanging out with them and swam with them,” Morris said this week at Redskins Park. “Really, just spent the day with them.”
Naturally, Morris tagged along when the kids had a baseball game to play that afternoon.
He left that game with a little idea, however.

Nine of the 10 selections for this week’s “Rookie Watch,” a weekly look by ESPN.com’s Matt Williamson into the best rookies of the 2012 NFL season, look like this: six first-round picks, two second-round picks and a third-round pick from April’s NFL Draft.
But who’s the one outlier of the group this week?
Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who was selected in the sixth round this year out of Florida Atlantic.
Morris — the league’s leading rookie rusher through three weeks of NFL action — comes in at No. 9 overall in this week’s “Rookie Watch,” while his quarterback, Robert Griffin III, is ranked second overall.
Here’s what Williamson had to say about Griffin III’s and Morris’ seasons thus far:
