Like Oher and the soon-to-be-released movie, "The Blind Side," Morris' life story was made into a major motion picture in 2002. But Morris was retired from Major League Baseball for more than a year when "The Rookie," starring Dennis Quaid, was released. Not even "The Rookie" was a rookie when his life was immortalized on film - demonstrating Oher's unique situation.

For Jim Morris and Scott McGill of Jarrettsville, playing in the mud is serious business. "I was born this way," Morris said. "This is what I've always done - go out and play in the mud." McGill agrees with Morris: "I realized that you could make a living being a biologist playing in the mud in the stream." Morris and McGill are co-owners of Ecotone Inc., a company that helps farmers in Harford County and neighboring areas improve parts of their land to make it more environmentally sustainable, while giving developers required to fund environmental efforts the chance to do so in places where it will make a difference.
