Monsignor Edward Pace Alumni Stephen morris is named University of Miami Starting QB
It wasn’t much of a surprise according to most involved in the program when last year’s back-up quarterback Stephen Morris was given the starting nod by University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch Monday.
The Monsignor Edward Pace Alumni will lead the Hurricanes into 2012 beginning on Sept. 1 at Boston College.
In 2010, as a freshman, Morris took over when the former starting quarterback Jacory Harris sustained a concussion at Virginia, completing 82 of 153 passes for 1,240 yards and seven touchdowns in six games (four which were starts). Last season, including the one start in the opening loss at Maryland, Morris was 26 of 37 for 283 yards, with two interceptions.
