College Note - Washington Dylan Morris
Dylan Morris came under heavy criticism as the starting quarterback for the Washington Huskies during their 4-8 season in 2021. Morris, expected to be the backup again this season to Michael Penix Jr. , has earned himself a big fan - Ryan Grubb, the Huski es' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach - for how he has handled himself after all that criticism.
"I don't know if there's many guys that I admire more than Dylan Morris because I think that there's grown men that would be able to take about 1% of the criticism that Dylan's taken, and operate at the level that Dylan operates at," Grubb said Wednesday about the former Graham-Kapowsin High School star. In 2021, Morris completed 220 of 362 passes for 2,458 yards with 14 touchdowns and 12 in terceptions. But the season started with a shocking loss to Montana and it didn't get much better.
"He knows the expectations that this community has for this program, and there is nobody more disappointed on a 4-8 season than Dylan," said Grubb, who sai d Morris has grown a lot as a player since then. "I think he admitted to himself to things that he needed to get better at and he owned the mistakes that he made. " Grubb said Morris is one of the hardest workers on the team and does a good job "being in the day - be great today and then tomorrow, do the same thing.
" Grubb said a quarterback has to "have thick skin" and he said Morris has taken that to heart. "I admire that kid a ton," Grubb said. "I don't that I would have had the mental fortitude to bl ast through some of the stuff that he has and still be really positive.
