Grant Morgan rarely came off the field for Greenwood this fall, and that’s just the way he likes it.

Morgan led the Bulldogs in tackles with 149, recorded 3.0 sacks and a whopping 26.0 tackles-for-loss. He also logged some offensive numbers as well, with 13 receptions for 293 yards and 5 touchdowns as the Bulldogs advanced to the Class 6A state title game before falling 28-21 to Pine Bluff.

He is this year’s All-NWADG Defensive Player of the Year.

“I don’t like stepping off the field,” Morgan said. “I want to do everything I can to help our team win. If they want me to run the ball, even if they want me to throw the ball, I would have done that. Just whatever it takes to win the game, I’ll do it.”

The younger brother of rising Arkansas wideout Drew Morgan, Grant said his older brother has played a big role in his development.

Greenwood was 7-0 this season against Class 7A teams, something Morgan and his teammates take great pride in.
