Morlon’s Motivation

Students and staff in the district received a special visit from Morlon Greenwood, one of its most famous alumni.

Greenwood, who played linebacker in the National Football League for the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders, revisited Freeport High School and Atkinson to speak to students about his journey and the importance of following their dreams. In separate assemblies, Greenwood told students to never give up, to listen to the advice of their parents and families, and that if they believe in reaching their goals, they shall achieve them. Greenwood’s visit was designed to motivate students, and to inspire them to continue working hard.

The famous alum also encouraged all students and their families to attend the first annual Morlon Greenwood Foundation Football Camp on July 10 at 6 p.m. The free event will be held at the high school, and will feature giveaways, refreshments and visits from several professional athletes.
