Case Western Reserve University junior wide receiver Colt Morgan (Wooster, Ohio / Wooster) was named to the D3football.com Preseason All-America Third Team, as announced by the website on Thursday evening.
The rising junior is coming off a breakout campaign in 2018 after earning a spot on the all-region second team and the All-PAC First Team. Morgan set a program record with 18 touchdown receptions (second in DIII in 2018), while his 1,094 receiving yards (15th in DIII) and 7.9 receptions per game (14th in DIII) were each the second-highest single-season totals in program history.
Morgan was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week after catching 15 passes for a program-record 281 yards and three touchdowns against Saint Vincent. The effort was one of four games of at least 100 receiving yards for Morgan during the campaign. Morgan was named the PAC Athlete of the Week once, and the UAA Athlete of the Week twice during the 2018 season.
The Spartans open the 2019 campaign on the road against the University of Rochester on Saturday, September 7th at 7:00 p.m. in Rochester, New York.
