Every year, Morris Sussex Sports publishes it’s postseason football awards as a way to honor all of the players and memorialize the season that just was. Early on, we would affectionately call this team the “All Unruly Team” and some people still refer to these awards as that. Officially the All Morris Sussex Team, this is our way to tip our cap to the players, coaches, cheerleaders, fans, parents, marching band members and families that have dedicated themselves to this year.
The writers at Morris Sussex Sports have poured over video, talked to coaches, compared statistics and read all of our game notes to come up with who we felt deserved recognition. And although we are distinguishing certain athletes with different honors, we recognize that every football deserves a nod. We know that there are players that stuck it out for four years and because their number was wasn’t called, they never stepped onto the varsity field. And although they may not be recognized by in the All Morris Sussex Sports Team, they are just as much of a gladiator as the leading scorer on their team.
In a team sport like football, every single team member is vital. Long time high school writer Mike Kinney summed this up perfectly in a recent Tweet:
Said this before & meant it
Heartfelt congratulations for each NJ HS FB player who did NOT earn postseason honors, yet stuck it out and did your darn best when called upon. Forget the stars.
YOU are the backbone of your team. You will prosper for your noble but silent efforts.

With that said, we hope every Morris-Sussex football player takes pride in their fellow teammates that are recognized in the 2019 All Morris Sussex Sports Team.
