Jack Morris
Position: Hall of Fame Inductee
Other Position: 2005 Inductee, Football (1955-57)

 

The former Medford High School multi-sport standout helped supply part of a one-two punch that was instrumental in Oregon’s Rose Bowl run in 1957 as well as the years leading up to the school’s first post-season showing in nine years. Playing both offense and defense, it was not uncommon to see him excel as a blocker, receiver, tackler, punter and placekicker in the same game. As a sophomore, Morris set the Ducks’ single-season scoring record (68 points) while initiating his school-record string of 23 consecutive PATs. In 1956, he led the team in rushing as a junior (519 yards). As a senior, his then school record of 212 yards rushing against USC still ranks eighth among the program’s all time single-game efforts almost 50 years later. By the time he was through, the team captain ranked third in career points scored (130) as well as career rushing yards (1,631 yards). Following his collegiate career, he enjoyed a stint in the NFL that included stops in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and Minnesota, leading the Rams in interceptions (6) as a rookie in 1958. Already inducted into Oregon’s Hall of Fame as a member of the Ducks’ 1958 Rose Bowl team, he also was honored as a charter member of Medford’s Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
