Who Is This FL HS Legend? Dan Morgan/Taravella


Recommended Posts

You wouldn't necessarily think it by looking at this high school picture, but this guy went on to become an absolute stud in college and ultimately the NFL.

1. Where did he play in high school?

2. Where did he go to college and what position did he play?

3. He won numerous awards in college.  Name one of them.

Recognized him instantly. Dan Morgan from Taravella. If I remember correctly he was a fullback/running back in high school. Started at OLB at Miami as a true freshman along side Nate Webster. Moved to the middle when Webster left early (big mistake, they would have beat Washington has Webster stayed, IMO) As a senior at Miami he won almost every major defensive award including the Nagurski, Butkus. and Bednarik

Beat the Washington Huskies? Do you mean in 2000 when the Hurricanes lost to UW early in the season and FSU got to play Oklahoma for the NC in the Orange Bowl instead of Miami, even though The Hurricanes beat the Seminoles in the regular season?

That's the game. Had Webster stayed, Morgan would have been on the outside at his regular position and the defense could have held while the offense, under Dorsey's first road start could have found its footing. Webster was an All-American that left a year early. 

The offense didn't get going until the second half. Washington scored almost all their points in the first half. 

Just my opinion.

They tried to give Bowden a few national titles
