An Oregon Ducks football legend has passed on.
On April 27th, Jack Morris died at the age of 90 due to Alzheimer’s.
The running back, cornerback, and kicker was a key member of the 1957-58 team that went to the Rose Bowl.
Morris, who played two sports at Oregon, was at the school from 1955-57. He left Oregon after his freshman year in 1950-51 to enlist in the air force, serving four years, including in the Korean War. He would return back to school in 1955 and set the Ducks’ then-single-season scoring record with 68 points.
One of his best seasons came in 1956 when he rushed for 519 yards.
