Jackson Morrill leads the league in points but he doesn’t really care. Individual achievements aren’t of great interest to him. Despite tallying 10 points, 0 turnovers, and an astonishing 100% shot on goal percentage, Morrill only cares about one thing, winning.
Head Coach Tim Soudan has built a team culture based on a team first mentality, where being egoless is nonnegotiable. Morrill, who credits his time at Yale for teaching him how valuable culture is to success, fully embraces the Chrome culture. He knows exactly what his role is within the team:
“Me dodging for four goals is usually a sign that our offense isn’t playing as well..a game where I have four assists is a better indicator that our offense was playing well”
Morrill’s role at X is to quarterback the offense, to find open players and set them up for success. In week one, a dominant team victory, he had four assists. However, when the Chrome are struggling offensively, he’s proven that he can put the team on his back and take scoring into his own hands. Such was the case in a week two loss where Morrill scored five of the team’s seven goals.
