Syracuse Football has had a long history of success. We look back at some of the best players to play at Syracuse University. Up next, No. 12: Joe Morris.

Syracuse Football legend Joe Morris was one heck of a running back. This man was a bruising running back that just made play, after play, after play. During his time at Syracuse from 1978-1981, he set records that no one at Syracuse may ever touch again.

The crazy thing about Morris is that he followed in the footsteps of former Syracuse Football greats Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, Floyd Little, and Larry Csonka, yet he did not let the pressure of being Syracuse’s starting running back phase him.
