HURRICANE MORSE HEADS TO JACKSONVILLE

JACKSONVILLE, FLA - The Jacksonville Sharks announce the addition of offensive and defensive lineman Derrick Morse to the 2011 roster.

Morse (6’5, 310, Miami) heads to Jacksonville after a stint in both the NFL and UFL after a standout career at the University of Miami (FL). Morse was recently released from contract with the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL. Prior to being with the Mountain Lions, Morse saw action in four preseason games with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free-agent in 2008.

Starting 29 games in his five-year collegiate career, Morse was an All-ACC honorable mention as well as being the recipient of coach-given awards for commitment, leadership and consistency. Morse played in three consecutive bowl games, including a 27-10 victory over the Florida Gators in the 2004 Peach Bowl.

Morse was a consensus choice as one of the finest offensive linemen in Florida out of Estero High School in south Florida. As a junior in 2001, recorded 74 pancake blocks in a 10-game season. He was rated the 38th best offensive lineman in the country by Allen Wallace’s SuperPrep and a SuperPrep All-American. Morse was rated a Top 30 prospect by SuperPrep, Tom Lemming’s Prep Football Report and the Orlando Sentinel Florida Top 100. He was also third-team selection of the Fox Sports Net All-South Team.

The Jacksonville Sharks are members of the Arena Football League (AFL). The reigning South Division Champions play all home games on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. The Sharks return to action Saturday, March 12, 2011 in Arizona to battle the Rattlers. The Sharks return home Saturday, March 19, 2011 to take on division foe Georgia Force.
