Today Randall will be speaking from his heart! No big introduction will be made but you will get great insight to Randall and his optimism from his comment below!

When asked if he could relive one day of his life, Randall’s reply was; “I think I’ve been very blessed. So I’m not going to be greedy or complain about anything that ever happened to me. I think I’ve lived a pretty good life. God has blessed me and taken care of my family. So I’m fine. I’m fine the way it is.”



About the Speaker

Raised in Long Beach California, Randall Morris chose to attend college and play football at the University of Tennessee. Randall Morris arrived in 1984 as a 10th-round draft choice of the Seattle Seahawks from the University of Tennessee. He had one of the better nicknames in Seahawk franchise history: “Too Hard to Handle,” as in “Too Hard to Handle Randall.” It was eventually shortened to simply “Too Hard,” with hand gestures to match – two extended fingers that then form a fist. He played behind Curt Warner, so his best rushing total in five seasons came in 1985 when he gained 236 of his 651 career yards. But he also returned kickoffs in ’85 (20.5-yard average), 1986 (20.2) and 1988 (19.8). He played in 61 games and started two.

After football, Randall owned Final Clean, a company that prepares just-constructed buildings so the tenants can move in. “I never left the Seattle area,” he said. “I’m from Long Beach, Calif., and I didn’t want to raise my family down there. This is a much nicer place.”

In 2015, Morris started the Randall Morris Foundation. The Randall Morris Foundation benefits two charities that are close to Randall’s heart – the Burned Children Recovery Foundation and Mary’s Place - as both organizations have a strong emphasis on children!
