UTSA’s David Morgan II continues to haul in passes, accolades


USM-UTSA-game-factsIn many offenses, tight end is one of the most important positions on the field and UTSA’s David Morgan is an integral part of the Roadrunner’s success.

Larry Coker, his head coach, has compared him to some of the greats he once coached at Miami.

Morgan, who leads UTSA with 29 receptions for 352 yards and a school record-tying four touchdowns this season, was one of 35 players named this week to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, presented to the nation’s top tight end.

He ranks second among FBS tight ends in catches, third in receiving TDs and fourth in receiving yards.

But Morgan is more concerned with team goals than personal accolades.
