Shane Morris
August 24, 2012: Morris's Warren (MI) De La Salle team beat Ann Arbor (MI) Pioneer by a score of 35-7.  Morris was 14/26 passing for 177 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception.


September 1, 2012: De La Salle lost to Cleveland (OH) St. Ignatius by a score of 49-13.  Morris was 9/22 passing for 104 yards, 0 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions.  His team is now 1-1.

September 8, 2012:  De La Salle beat Dearborn (MI) Fordson by a score of 40-19.  Morris completed 9/18 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown.  Warren De La Salle is now 2-1.

September 15, 2012:  Even though Morris was diagnosed with Mono earlier in the week, he still managed to play the first half of De La Salle's 28-0 loss to Birmingham (MI) Brother Rice Saturday night.  Shane completed 8/17 passes for 87 yards and one interception.  Warren De La Salle is now 2-2.

September 23, 2012:  By now you probably know that Shane Morris has mono and is out of action for the foreseeable future.  His team put on a good performance against Detroit Catholic Central Sunday afternoon but ultimately fell in overtime by a score of 31-30.  De La Salle is now 2-3 and most likely out of postseason contention. 

September 29, 2012:  De La Salle played host to Ontario (Canada) Niagara at St. Claire Shores Lake Shore on Saturday afternoon.  Despite Shane's absence, De La Salle took care of business and won the game by a score of 32-0.  De La Salle is now 3-3.

October 6, 2012:  Shane Morris says that he will be back in action before the end of De La Salle's season.  His team was rolled by Orchard Lake St. Mary's, 35-0, Saturday while he cheered from the sidelines, but Morris said before the game that he has been back practicing for over a week and is waiting to be cleared medically for full contact.  He is currently being held out due to a swollen spleen, but tweeted that he feels "100% better."  De La Salle has two games remaining; they are now 3-4.

October 12, 2012:  Morris returned to the lineup for Warren De La Salle after missing the last three full games due to mono.  His Pilots defeated University of Detroit Jesuit, 39-12, and he finished the game 17/22 passing for 163 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions with a long of 28 yards.  De Las Salle is now 4-4.

October 19, 2012:  Morris played exclusively in the first half of his team's 44-6 win over Harper Woods (MI) Chandler Park if only to "shake off some rust."  He finished with one touchdown and two interceptions on 5/14 passing for 138 yards.  118 of those yards came on two screen passes.  De La Salle is now 5-4 and likely out of postseason contention.

  1. Andrew; Warren De La Salle is now 2-2, right? Not 3-1.

  2. I'm not putting a lot of stock into last game since it's very admiral just to try and play with mono. Hopefully Shane heals up quickly. However, is anyone else a little concerned with Shanes statistics so far? He's below 50% completion percentage, 5.6YPA and has more INT's then TD's. I was curious about his previous years stats and he's hovered right around 50% completion percentage throughout high school. I know he's played stiff competition and doesn't have the greatest team but I have to admit I'm a bit worried.

    He has such high expecations from many in the fanbase, but I hope he's given time to develop. I know Shane has a huge arm and all the talent in the world, but I really hope he is able to red-shirt next year.

    1. I'm not too worried, but you identify some interesting points. I sure don't expect Morris to step in and play as well as Chad Henne did as a freshman.

    2. DLS is not a very good football team. The DLS WR's cannot get open against better athletes and the DLS OL isn't giving Morris much time. I am not a Shane-apologists, but he is a great player on a pretty poor team.

  3. They went from 2-2 to 1-4? That is tough to do.

    1. The MI Prep article I read originally had 1-4 as their record, although it is now fixed. Still, I'm making this De La Salle record thing much more difficult than it needs to be.

  4. Food for thought...DLS has been deemed as a pretty lousy team, at least offensively (aside from Morris). Does DCC not have a good defense? If DLS put up 30 points without Shane, yet had struggled to score more than a few TDs a game with him, what does this say? Coincidence?

  5. I believe Cass Tech lost earlier this season to OLSM. Then DLS rolls over them without Shane?

    1. No...OLSM won. It says "His team was rolled by OLSM..."
