Rich Take On Sports

Show Notes:

  • Rich Spotlight: Morgan Cox
    • Still amazed that it has been 9-years that he’s been playing in the NFL especially knowing that he never truly thought that it was a realistic goal
    • Grew up in a sports household and starting in the 5th grade he got the long snapping job on his team because no one else really wanted to do it or had any experience
    • Long snapping is like a golf swing as it’s individualized to each person
    • Remembers telling a friend that he would get a tattoo if he ever won the Super Bowl and although he did win a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2013 he still hasn’t gotten that tattoo
    • Grew up a Tennessee Vols fan and his parents still have the message from Coach Wade at Tennessee offering him the opportunity to walk-on at Tennessee
    • Loudest game in college was the SEC Championship against LSU
    • The Senior Bowl was his tryout for all the NFL teams and he liked Jerry Rosburg with the Baltimore Ravens and Coach Rosburg extended the offer for Morgan to attend their camp
    • Has a unique bond with punter Sam Koch and kicker Justin Kicker and Justin has described the trio as the “Wolfpack”
    • He battled through 2 different ACL tears to earn a spot on the Pro-Bowl in 2015 and 2016
    • His wife Lauren is an actress and makes sure to let him know that acting or singing is not something he should pursue after football
    • Words of Wisdom from Morgan Cox: “Pursue what you’re passionate about.”
