Interview by Ashlynn McQuillen

Millersville’s head football coach, J.C. Morgan has been with the Marauders since April 30, 2018 and through his hard work and dedication, in two seasons he has laid the foundation and built upon the core element of revitalization. Morgan signed on as Millersville’s head coach after 13 years at Shippensburg University where he helped the Shippensburg offense break more than 100 school records.

Morgan is working on his fourth recruiting class, and has announced the addition of 24 student-athletes to his team. Coach J.C. touches on the challenges that come with recruitment and his expectations for his recruiting class this upcoming season below:

AM: What traits were you scouting for with the recruiting class?

J.C. Morgan: In our recruiting class, we were looking to add young men who can play the game of football at a high level, as well as represent our football family and university to the best of their ability. On the field, we wanted to continue to add young men who will compete in the PSAC and play a physical brand of football.

AM: You have recruited for Millersville for the last four years. What have been some of the core challenges?

J.C. Morgan: Looking at the recruiting landscape it’s important to build a great relationship between not only the coaches and the players but their families as well. With that being said, when it comes to recruiting, we focus on the opportunities. At Millersville, there is potential to build something special and we look for young men who are excited about the opportunity to be a part of that process.

AM: What were some specific filling needs you have been able to achieve?

J.C. Morgan: With each recruiting class there are many areas that you look to address. We feel like we were able to fill the needs of each position group.

AM: What are filling needs you have yet to achieve even after the National Signing Day?

J.C. Morgan: We like where we are as a program, and I am very excited about the way the staff continues to develop the young men currently on campus. Given the current landscape of college football you must always have an eye out for potential opportunities to strengthen your roster.

AM: What are your expectations of your recruiting class this upcoming season?

J.C. Morgan: Expectations for the class is to come in, perform well in the classroom, work hard, be great teammates, and learn our schemes. If those things are being done the right way the results on the field will take care of themselves not only for this year but beyond.
