THE PRINCE of HISD: Heights' QB Morrison headlining state's biggest district
The Heights quarterback Jalen Morrison lit it up in 2019, throwing for over 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns… as a sophomore.
"J-Mo" earned Newcomer of the Year honors and will strike fear in district opponents for the next two seasons.
"Jalen is a super-smart kid who is ultra-competitive," Heights coach Stephen Dixon said. "He asks questions and wants to be perfect. He is the same in the classroom.
"I remember him coming in as a freshman and he picked up the offense in two days. He's developed into a dual-threat quarterback and now he's teaching the younger guys the offense. He makes our jobs as coaches a lot easier."
The 5-foot-11 dual-threat is putting in the work this summer with teammates and QB guru Jerrod Johnson, who now coaches for the Indianapolis Colts.
His football IQ is off the charts for his age and he has gained 20 pounds of good weight over the COVID19 layoff.
