Morris' Mr. Everything: Friend named Player of the Year
Talk to Morris head coach and offensive play-caller Alan Thorson or defensive coordinator John Courter about senior Danny Friend, and variations of the word "versatility" frequently get used.
Friend lined up at end, tackle and linebacker in Courter's defense. On offense, he blocked and ran routes from his tight-end position, but he also lined up at split end or even quarterback when needed. And in case those duties were not enough, Friend stepped in at long snapper for the Redskins' special-teams unit.
In those roles, Friend had enough of an impact for the 12-2, state runner-up Redskins to be named the 2012 Morris Daily Herald All-Area Player of the Year in football.
