Alfred Morris went from unknown rookie last summer, to being on the brink of being one of the premiere running backs in the NFC.
Morris is coming off a rookie season in which he rushed for aÂ Redskinsâ€™ single-season rushing record of Â 1,613 yards. Â Morris is hell-bent on not falling off, and told the Washington Post â€śhe wants to prove last year was no fluke.â€ť
â€śItâ€™s crazy,â€ť Morris said while shaking hands and receiving another round of atta-boys. â€śThis time last year, even a lot of [team employees] didnâ€™t know my name. I guess I gave the fans a reason to like me.â€ť
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has no doubt Morris will repeat the feat.
â€śthereâ€™s no question in my mind that heâ€™s going to be one of the best backsâ€ť again this season, Shanahan said recently. â€śHeâ€™s going to be a guy [who] just keeps getting better.Â .â€‰.â€‰.Â Now, can he surpass what he did last year? I canâ€™t answer that. But I would be surprised if he doesnâ€™t have an excellent year.â€ť
