Once the Morris Trophy (the award) was created, Traci Morris found herself with the task of creating a suitable trophy for the award. Traci sat down with Monte Holmes from Athletic Awards and communicated her vision, a brass linemen set into a clear epoxy football. After several attempts ending in shattered molds, he suggested the graphic be set into an epoxy marker with the clear football. Joe Sanford, Traci’s husband at the time and UW football player, created the graphics himself (still used in the trophy). The result was a classy, timeless trophy design that is an honor to receive and to award.
