The Hildesheim Invaders are determined to be a contender for the German Football League title in 2019 and have bolstered their offense with the signing of one of Germany’s top wide receivers in Nathaniel “Nate” Morris.
The 5’10”, 185 lb Morris (25), a native of Boston, Massachusetts, holds a Portuguese passport and comes to the Invaders after spending the 2017 and 2018 seasons with the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions, where he played wide receiver. In 2017, he was one of the leading wideouts in the GFL with 1,138 yards receiving while in 2018 in six games (he also played for Italy’s Bergamo Lions) he had 202 yards. He spent the 2016 season with the Frankfurt Universe where he led the league in passes defended (27) which included 20 pass breakups and seven interceptions.. With Morris in the secondary, Frankfurt was one of the top two teams in Germany against the pass. He helped the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns reach the German final in 2015 as a defensive back recording 54 tackles and three interceptions.
Morris played college football for Stonehill College (NCAA, Div II) in Easton, Massachusetts. He finished his career with 119 tackles, 10 interceptions and three touchdowns. He was named to the All Northeast 10 Conference All Star Team twice and was invited to play in the National Bowl All College All Star Game, for Division II players.
With the signing, the Invaders have reunited one of the deadliest offensive combinations in Europe in 2017 as recently-signed All-Europe quarterback Casey Therriault, formerly with the New Yorker Lions, will again be throwing to Morris.
Since moving up to the German Football League in 2016, Hildesheim has amassed a 12-30 record with the best season being in 2016 when they were 5-9.
