Wide receiver Steve Morris

Racine Raiders wide receiver Steve Morris makes an acrobatic catchSteve Morris is new to the Racine Raiders and joins us as a wide receiver. Steve, a first-team Associated Press All-State quarterback at Horlick High School in 2008, went on to Division II Southwest Baptist and eventually to UW-Whitewater, converting to wide receiver. While at Whitewater, Steve was part of three, Division 3 national championships under head coach Lance Leipold, who has moved on to coach the Division 1 Buffalo Bulls.

Growing up in Racine, Steve feels that the Racine Raiders organization is so well structured it makes it easy to be a player. Everybody has a role and everyone does their job. He feels this is why the
Raiders win football games.

Coming to the games to cheer Steve on are his parents (Patricia and Stan), his big brothers (Derick and Phillip), a lot of his friends, and even some of the youth athletes that he coaches. He wishes he could name everyone that comes to the games, but our program isn’t long enough to list them all.

Since graduating from Whitewater, Steve trains athletes and works in a warehouse. He’s been doing both since January.

Steve Morris goes up to make a catch.He really enjoys watching the success of the athletes he’s trained during their off season while watching them perform in their regular season.

In addition to work and football, Steve also enjoys fishing, playing video games, sleeping and eating. He says that he does a lot of solo activities.

On game day, Steve begins his day with a prayer and gets his mind ready for the game. He usually has everything ready that he needs for the game the night before so he can concentrate on the game itself.

Although Steve doesn’t currently own any pets, he hopes to one day own a small monkey. He considers himself really good at Jenga and cooking. He jokes and says he’s taking applications for a “best friend,” so find him and ask him for an application.
