QB Morris: Allen has best coaching staff in state

As Allen gets ready to step into the national spotlight this week, with Thursday's game at Plano East being televised on ESPN2, ESPNHS writer Jon Mahoney caught up with Eagles quarterback Alec Morris.

Morris, an Alabama recruit, has guided Allen (5-0) to the No. 3 national spot in the POWERADE FAB 50 ESPNHS team rankings and the No. 1 spot in the ESPNDallas.com area Class 5A rankings.

Morris discussed a variety of topics, including what playing for Allen represents. Here was his response:

It’s hard work. Schools are taken aback by what we do. We come in on Saturday mornings the day after the game to watch film and lift. We have the best coaching staff in the state. They’ll point you in the right direction; you just have to go out and do it. It’s definitely an amazing program to play for.
