QUOTES OF THE DAY
LB Kirk Morrison
On the impact that Junior Seau had on him as a young player (via WGR550 5/2):
“I met Junior when I was a freshman at San Diego State University. Growing up playing linebacker you automatically have people that you look up to and you say, “I wanna be like that guy one day.” Junior Seau was that guy. I remember talking to him and he said, “You’ve got potential. You can make it to the NFL.” Coming from him I was like wow. I really believed that. Look where I am now. I’ve been playing in the league eight years.”
