Big Mo moves spots

Louisiana Tech's recent move of Dennis Morris from linebacker to defensive end brings back memories of words from his Woodlawn coach Kendrick Law during practices last fall. Morris had a lineman between him and a ball carrier. Morris was supposed to shed the blocker and make the tackle.

"Aw, coach," Morris said, "I'm not gonna hurt that man."

In an interview with Brian McCallum, Law said, "He's big, strong and fast. He is the athlete; he's just not aggressive enough. He still has to break out of his shell of not wanting to hurt anybody."

And more from Law.

"Right now, he's the kid that has the ability to do whatever I need to get done. He's a total package."

Going up against 300-pound offensive lineman in college, who want to rip his head off, will probably make Morris aggressive in short order. And if he keeps getting bigger as expected, he will be a force to be reckoned with.
