Former Minnesota Viking Mike Morris is joining the Shakopee football staff as its new strength and conditioning coach.

You may know him as “The Superstar.”

He’s the larger-than-life long snapper who brought his one of a kind, no holds barred personality to the NFL for 13 years, according to a news release from the school district. In those years he played with the St. Louis and Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns, before finding his home with the Minnesota Vikings for nine years, the release said.

Morris is the man behind MILO, one of the most sought after, elite training clubs for serious-minded athletes in Minnesota. Morris has trained Matt Birk, Brock Lesnar, Todd Steussie, Chris Hovan and many others seeking his guidance and knowledge to make greater gains and achieve better results in their respective career, according to the news release.

Morris brought that vast experience to Concordia University-St. Paul as the Head of Strength and Conditioning, as well as Hill Murray High School, the release said.

Now Mike Morris is expanding his reach by partnering with Lifetime Fitness and bringing that knowledge and passion to the Shakopee High School football team, according to the release.
