The Morris Trophy is the college football award given annually to the top offensive lineman and defensive lineman in the Pacific-12 Conference. Founded by Traci Morris, it has been awarded since 1980. Traci’s idea was to have players vote for the best opponent they faced on the field. As such it is one of the best awards a player can receive. It truly comes from his peers.
