Sam Morton boosts Evangel with blitzes, punts

Skip to main content

Sam Morton is known as a quiet guy with a quick wit.

He’s known as a mechanical wizard, a guy who can fix most anything with the tools he keeps in his Jeep.

The senior linebacker from Strafford also is known as the latest in a line of quick, hard-hitting sack artists for the Evangel University football team.

Defensive linemen Josh Evans and Andreas Moeller were national leaders and NAIA All-Americans in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

The 6-foot-1, 203-pound Morton is on track to continue that yearly tradition with his performances this season as the backfield-stuffing playmaker for the 6-1 Crusaders.
