You know Malik McMorris. You love Malik McMorris. You help Malik McMorris?
The California Golden Bears’ H-back/fullback is a fan favorite for his personality and his adept ball skills and is being recognized for the latter as an official nominee for the Piesman Trophy—honoring the best non-line play by a lineman or similar player. You can vote for him at this link here.
McMorris’s 18-yard catch on 4th-and-1 against the North Carolina Tar Heels is the play that was officially highlighted by the Piesman site.
But McMorris’s career is filled with other highlights, like a touchdown catch against the Arizona Wildcats:

He’s also got several short-yardage conversions—including this one with a sweet spin move.
Cal's Malik McMorris, a 5-foot-11, 300-pound fullback who wears No. 99, remains my favorite player in college football.— Sam Cooper (@SamDCooper) November 19, 2017

The winner will be announced on December 8. You need to select five players in order to vote, so I may have voted for McMorris and four players from lesser-known schools.
