Did you know?
On February 20, 1940, Herman Morris signed a contract to play for the
Detroit Lions, but he never played in a regular season game with them.
Herman was good friends with fellow Murray State teammate and professional
football player, Pete Gudauskas. In an interview, Pete Gudauskas said
Morris was the main reason he attended Murray State. Pete went on to explain
that Morris was heavily recruited to play football at Murray State and as a
condition of him attending, they would have to recruit Gudauskas as well.
