There are many words you could use to describe high a caliber athlete such as NFL defensive back Morris Claiborne. But, after working with Mo, our Chase & Hunter can think of only one: STUD. After all, how else would you describe a player who made a name playing opposite to established NFL heavyweight Patrick Peterson in college, all the while managing to get drafted 6th overall in the first round of the 2012 draft? Listing all of Morris’ achievements is a mouthful on its own, all of which have occurred before stepping onto NFL turf.
From a young age, the young Louisiana native was a top prospect and professional hopeful. Having accumulated countless awards playing defense for the LSU Tigers, including one championship and the title of SEC Defensive Player Of The Year in 2011, both considered among the most coveted awards in college sports. In his pro career with the legendary Dallas Cowboys squad, he’s been accredited with shutting down All-Star receivers, such as AJ Green and Torrey Smith, as well as several key plays resulting in huge wins for the franchise.
However, Morris’ journey to success has had its own brand of adversity to overcome. Having been sidelined for a considerable part of his career due to an ongoing battle with injuries, this 27-year-old phenomenon has had to power through some pretty painful situations. From concussions to groin tears, it’s not been an easy road to recovery. Though, with a hopeful eye to the future, football fans everyone can look forward to seeing this young stud light up the field for the New York Jets, replacing defensive legend Darrelle Revis. With football and family as this young man’s biggest priorities in life, men everywhere could learn a thing or two from Mr. Claiborne. That being said, we are thrilled to have Big Mo join the Chase & Hunter team.
