Morris Returns Jersey Favor To Campbell

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 20, 2013 – 12:54 pm

Last month Redskins second year running back Alfred Morris got the present of a lifetime that any NFL fan dreams of—an autographed jersey of one of the great gridiron legends of all time, Earl Campbell.

Campbell, like Morris, burst onto the scene his rookie year with 13 touchdowns helping the Houston Oilers achieve a 10-6 record.

Unsurprisingly, the FAU product was overtaken with delight over the signed No. 34 Oilers jersey.

“He would plow right over people. Nobody could tackle him. Man..this is awesome.”

The story, however, didn’t end there.

Morris returned the favor—with a signed No. 46 Redskins jersey.

Analogous to the story of quarterback Robert Griffin III, Campbell was a star in his native state of Texas growing up.

With the University of Texas, Campbell ensured the Longhorns that they weren’t leaving the top of the college football world anytime soon—or at least from 1974-1977.

Through his first three seasons Austin, Campbell rushed for nearly 2,700 yards and 22 touchdowns. What followed, though, was one of the greatest seasons by a player in NCAA history.

Starting the 1977 season, Texas found itself outside of the AP preseason top-five and wasn’t expected to challenge perennial power and rival Oklahoma. Whoever compiled the rankings, however, must have forgotten about Campbell.

In 12 games, Campbell rushed for 1,744 yards (6.5 YPC) and 18 touchdowns. Numbers that got the Longhorns to their first title game in seven years.

Oh and he won the Heisman, too.

So why did I give you a brief review of Campbell’s career you might ask?

Simple—it proves that it doesn’t matter how you performed in college or where you got drafted (Campbell went No. 1 overall in the 1978 NFL Draft).

All that matters is that you make a statement once you reach the NFL.

As for Morris’ signed jersey he wrote:

“To Earl: I’m privileged to be able to stand on the shoulders of a giant such as yourself.”

While No. 46 still has a long time to go until he reaches the standing of the 1991 Hall of Fame inductee, he already is “ahead” after year one–signed jersey and all.

Hail to the Redskins!
