|The storied career of one of the most revered players in Western Bulldogs history, Dale Morris, has come to an end.|
After 15 years at the highest level, the 36-year-old premiership player and All-Australian has made the decision to retire after 253 games.
Morris leaves the game as one of the most respected footballers of the modern era; a shining example of perseverance, willpower, skill, determination and sacrifice.
He has become a fine ambassador for the Western Bulldogs and the game of AFL, a remarkably reliable team-mate, and a wonderful role model for the next generation of players and fans.
“Everyone who knows me knows that if I could play footy forever, I would. I just love the game so much,” Morris said.
“But unfortunately that’s not possible for any footballer, and although it was a tough decision for me to make, the time has come for me to finish my playing career.
